James Franco Debuts His First Book (PHOTOS)

James Franco: Talented actor, artist, student, part-time drag queen and now, published author!

The 127 Hours actor popped by a Barnes & Noble in New York to sign copies of his new book, Palo Alto, on Wednesday night. The creative actor-cum-writer penned the collection of short stories after graduating from Columbia’s famed MFA creative writing program.

It’s tough to imagine how James found the time to write a book this year, considering he’s starred in multiple films, unveiled an art exhibit and made several guest appearances on TV shows, including the soap opera General Hospital. No one can criticize James for not being a hard-working guy!
