TX – Jane Two Signing

00000000-SPF-jane-two

Actor, director and writer SEAN PATRICK FLANERY appears at BookPeople to discuss and sign his debut novel Jane Two on Friday, April 22, 2016 at 7:00 PM!

Press Release:

We are proud to have Sean Patrick Flanery, accomplished actor (Boondock Saints, Young Indiana Jones, etc.), director and writer in our store this evening as he introduces his debut novel, Jane Two. Join us here at BookPeople as he explores that powerful first taste of love that sets the bar for something that we’ll chase, usually unsuccessfully, for the rest of our lives.

ABOUT JANE TWO

A young Mickey navigates through the dense Texas humidity of the 70s and out onto the porch every single time his Granddaddy calls him, where he’s presented with the heirloom recipe for life, love, and manhood. But all the logic and insight in the world cannot prepare him to operate correctly in the presence of a wonderfully beautiful little girl who moves in just behind his rear fence. How will this magical moment divide Mickey’s life into a “before and after” and permanently change his motion and direct it down the unpaved road to which only a lucky few are granted access?

ABOUT SEAN PATRICK FLANERY

Sean Patrick Flanery is an American actor who was raised in a small town outside Houston, Texas. He has appeared in over 100 movies and television shows, some of which he hopes you’ve seen and some of which he hopes you haven’t.
