October 13: 8:00PM 9:00PM

While James Franco’s writing has spanned the poetic form, autobiography, essay, and short stories, October’s release of Actors Anonymous marks his debut as a novelist. Called “..Electrifying” by Amy Hempel and “provocatively honest” by Gary Shteyngart, Actors Anonymous is a powerful first novel modeled loosely on the twelve traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous; it explores in great scope the societal implications behind what happens when our public personas overtake our private ones. Join us in the Strand’s fifth floor loft for a special meet-and-greet to celebrate the release of Actors Anonymous.

+ James will ONLY be signing copies of Actors Anonymous. No other books or memorabilia, please.

+ There will be no posing for photos with James, though cameras are okay to have in the event space.

+ Due to time constraints, each ticketed guest will receive a pre-signed copy of Actors Anonymous as they exit the event space.

+ Please, no gifts.

+ Due to time constraints, one book per customer will be signed.

This event is now SOLD OUT. In order to attend the event, all customers must have already purchased the book + event ticket. Purchase of one book ticket admits one person. Books are only available for pick-up at the event. The event will be located in the Strand's fifth floor loft space, accessible through the elevator lobby at 826 Broadway.
