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.
