San Francisco, CA
Cookie Mueller was a firecracker, a cult figure, a wild child, a writer, a go-go dancer, a mother and a queer icon. A child of suburban 1950s Maryland, she made her name as an actress in John Waters's films, including Pink Flamingos and Female Trouble, and then as an art critic for Details magazine and a columnist for the East Village Eye, gaining a reputation as a writer of hilarious stories and a maven of New York’s downtown art world.
Although she died from AIDS in 1989, Cookie’s notoriety and impact have grown in recent years. She has become a counter-culture icon.
Author Chloe Griffin will read from her new biography Edgewise: A Picture of Cookie Mueller. Cookies and cocktails will be present. Presented by The Green Arcade and Modern Appealing Clothing. Free admission.
