We have all seen Frances Bean mention some of her current favorite music and reads on her Twitter feed. Every now and then, the witchy twenty-three year old will sprinkle us with a dash of her vast knowledge of music, books, film, and art. I have compiled a list of just some of Frances’ picks for your ears and your eyes. Fill your brain. Go nuts.
