Kepler's Arts & Lectures Presents James Franco

Sunday, October 27th

Menlo-Atherton Center for Performing Arts
Menlo-Atherton High School
555 Middlefield Rd.
Atherton, CA 94027


Academy Award Nominated actor James Franco will be discussing his debut novel 'Actors Anonymous'. The actors in the novel include a McDonald's drive-thru operator who spends his shift trying on accents; an ex-child star recalling a massive beachside bacchanal; hospital volunteers and Midwestern transplants; a vampire flick starlet who discovers a cryptic book written by a famous actor gone AWOL; and the ghost of River Phoenix. Then there's Franco himself, who prowls backstage, peering out between the lines before taking the stage with fascinating meditations on his art, along with nightmarish tales of excess.

James Franco was born at Stanford Hospital and spent the first 18 years of his life in Palo Alto. He is an actor, director, author, and visual artist. His film appearances include Milk, Pineapple Express, Howl, and 127 Hours, which earned him an Academy Award nomination. He is the author of the collection 'Palo Alto', and his writing has been published in Esquire, Vanity Fair, N+1, The Wall Street Journal, and McSweeney's. Franco's art has been exhibited throughout the world including at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, the Museum of Contemporary Art's PS1 in New York, the Clocktower Gallery in New York, and the Peres Projects in Berlin.

Question: Is the James Franco Actor's Anonymous Book Signing Event sold out already? Because it says the tickets are unavailable but they just went on sale today.
Answer: The event is not sold out. Tickets will be available shortly.
Question: Do you have an idea for when they will go on sale?
Answer: Within the next day. Check back soon!
Question: Are there going to be separate signing tickets?
Answer: The premier ticket holders will be first in the signing line followed by general admission ticket holders who have books to be signed. There is not a separate signing ticket.
Question: Can we still purchase the book at the event and attend the signing? Is there a cap on the people allowed at the signing?
Answer: Yes. Anyone who buys the book at the event can enter the signing line.
Question: will it be possible to snap a quick photo with James while he is signing the book? How long is the event??? Are tickets going to sell out soon?
Answer: I'm sorry, there will be no posed photos with James. He is signing the book only. No memorabilia. The event should last an hour followed by book signing. Tickets are 3/4 purchased.
Question: I bought two priority seating tickets, will the books that come with it be shipped to me, or do I pick them up at the event?
Answer: The books will be available for pickup at the event.
Question: I read that premier ticket holders get into signing line before general admission. If I got general admission tickets and have a copy of the book, will I still be able to get my book signed?
Answer: Yes, you will be able to get your book signed.
Question: I understand there are not posed photos. Could we still take a photo while waiting in line?
Answer: Yes. You can take photos from the auditorium and the line.
Question: If I am unable to make it could I relinquish my ticket today for a refund? If not, could I still get my copy of the book (I have bought a priority ticket) at a later point?
Answer: Books that were not picked up at the event are being held at the Will-Call desk at Kepler's Books. 1010 El Camino Real, Menlo Park
