BookPeople presents Sean Penn
BookPeople is thrilled to present film icon Sean Penn at Central Presbyterian Church to speak about his new novel, BOB HONEY WHO JUST DO STUFF.

The darkly humorous novel tells the picaresque story of Bob Honey, a middle-aged, divorced, disillusioned man living in a nondescript house on a nondescript street in Woodview, California. Bob Honey is a man of many tradessewage specialist, purveyor of pyrotechnics, contract killer for a mysterious government agency that pays in small bills.  The novel is a revised and expanded work based on an audiobook (no longer available) narrated by Penn and released in October 2016 under the pseudonym Pappy Pariah.

As an actor, Penn has been nominated five times for an Academy Award® as Best Actor for Dead Man Walking, Sweet and Lowdown, I Am Sam and won his first Oscar® in 2003 for his searing performance in Clint Eastwood's Mystic River and his second in 2009 for Gus Van Sant's Milk. He has worked as an actor, writer, producer and director on over one hundred theater and film productions. As a filmmaker, Penn has crafted powerful dramas such as The Indian Runner, The Pledge and Into the Wild, which garnered him nominations from the Directors Guild Awards and Writers Guild Awards. Additionally, Penn wrote and directed the United States contribution to the compilation film 11'09'01. In 2002, he penned a prescient open letter, which he published in The Washington Post and New York Times, to President George W. Bush against the planned invasion of Iraq. In 2004, Penn wrote a two-part feature in The San Francisco Chronicle after a second visit to the war-torn Iraq and in 2005, he wrote a five-part feature in the same paper reporting from Iran during the election which led to the Ahmadinejad regime.  Additionally, Penn published landmark interviews with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and Cubas President Raul Castro for The Nation and The Huffington Post; Penn's interview with Castro was his first-ever with an international journalist.  

Tickets for this event are $28 and include one copy of BOB HONEY WHO JUST DO STUFF with a signed book plate.
