Sean Penn in Conversation with Paul Theroux: Bob Honey Sings Jimmy Crack Corn

Sean Penn

Sean Penn has been making powerful, fearless films for over three decades—and his new novel crackles with the same restless energy.

Join the Academy Award winning actor, director and writer for a candid conversation about his new novel, Bob Honey Sings Jimmy Crack Corn—a madcap satire and political thriller that only Penn could have written. What (or who) inspired the hilariously deranged title character of both of Penn’s novels? Are there parallels between writing fiction, directing and acting? How has the state of America in the last five years fueled Penn’s singular and hilariously twisted vision? Penn tackles these questions and much more in what promises to be a fascinating evening.
