James Franco appears at The Strand for a very special evening with Frank Bidart on Friday August 9th from 7:00PM – 8:00PM
Academy Award Nominated Actor James Franco plays with the concept of memoir in his new book A California Childhood, through personal snapshots, sketches, paintings, poems, and stories.
An actor treads the line between reality and fiction every time he plays a part, and
for James Franco, that exploration isn’t limited to the screen—he’s also a visual artist with several exhibitions under his belt as well as the author of the widely praised story collection Palo Alto.
On the evening of August 9th, James will join us in the store for a special conversation and signing with legendary poet and academic Frank Bidart. Aside from the achievement of his many collections, Frank’s 2002 chapbook, Music Like Dirt, is the only chapbook to ever be nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. James and Frank will be speaking on memoir, California, and their own approaches to their written and visual creative endeavors.
