More Services

Last Friday James Franco and poet Frank Bidart discussed Franco’s A California Childhood, his latest book in which he plays with the concept of “memoir through personal snapshots, sketches, paintings, poems, and stories.”

This is not the first time the two have teamed up, Franco used one Frank’s poems for his short film Herbert White, starring Michael Shannon, a few years ago.

Frank read some passages from the book and James discussed childhood, saying it doesn’t feel free.

James Franco will be promoting The Dangerous Book Four Boys this month in L.A. and NYC, including two book signings planned at MOCA and Strand  Books.

The book is based on a 2010 exhibition curated by Alanna Heiss and organized by the Clocktower Gallery in which Franco explored themes of childhood and nostalgia, games and destruction. The exhibit included experimental films, drawings, and childlike constructions which we documented here when the exhibit opened.
