'A Decade in the Life of Dr. Zorro' book event with author PJ Killeen, Oct. 1st at Florey's!



Florey's Books welcomes author PJ Killeen as he discusses his memoir, "A Decade in the Life of Dr.Zorro: A Seventies Saga"

***Saturday, October 1st, 7:30pm***

About the book:

For over 30 years, my patient wife has been a captive audience as I relentlessly brought up my past adventures and misdeeds under the pretense and alias of “Dr. Zorro.” For all those years, she pleaded with me to chronicle my stories—if not for posterity, then at least to leave a dubious legacy for our grandchildren and anyone else who may take a passing interest.

About the Author:

As my dear wife pointed out, this endeavor would be an excellent exercise to stimulate my memory. Several years ago, I was blindsided by an ocular stroke, which not only affected my vision but meddled with my memory as well. I saw the wisdom in my wife’s advice. In these pages, I have written down the events that comprised the decade of decadence and spiritual awakening (1970 to 1980). Keep in mind that this is not a fictional account. The truth is my anchor in my sea of stories. I have altered names to protect the innocent (and not so innocent), but the facts remain intact.

Find out how this Ancient, Natural Health application has prospered through the Ages. Back in Egypt and in Biblical times, there were no pharmacies.

'Method to the Madness' book event with authors B.H. & Elizabeth James, Sept. 3rd at Florey's!



Florey's Books welcomes authors B.H. James and Elizabeth James as they discusses their new book, "Method to the Madness: A Common Core Guide to Creating Critical Thinkers Through the Study of Literature".

***Saturday, September 3rd, 2:00-4:00pm***

About the Book:

This book is ideal for the thousands of teachers who entered the profession in the last ten years and taught prescribed curriculum geared toward end of year bubble testing. Its intent is to empower districts and their teachers to create their own (free!) curriculum that will exceed the expectations of Common Core assessments, as well as create life-long learners that are college and career ready. By employing inquiry based units of study that insist on the use of iconic literature at the center, students will be more prepared for what awaits them with Common Core exams.

About the Authors:

B.H. James is the author of Parnucklian for Chocolate, a finalist for the 2014 PEN Center USA Literary Award in Fiction. He has spent the last ten years teaching English to sixth through twelfth graders in one of the largest school districts in the state of California.

Elizabeth James has spent the last eight years teaching English to all ability levels. She served the last four years as coordinator for the prestigious International Baccalaureate program in one of the largest school districts in the state of California. She and B.H. have two amazing sons.


We hope to see you!

Pacifica Book Club: 'Pillars of the Earth', Sept. 1st at Florey's!



Florey's welcomes you to our book club!

***Thursday, September 1st, 7:30pm-9:00pm***

Come by for a chat about our September book, 'Pillars of the Earth' by Ken Follett.

A departure for the bestselling thriller writer, the historical epic stunned readers and critics alike with its ambitious scope and gripping humanity. Today, it stands as a testament to Follett s unassailable command of the written word and to his universal appeal.

The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect a man divided in his soul of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame and of a struggle between good and evil that will turn church against state, and brother against brother.

A spellbinding epic tale of ambition, anarchy, and absolute power set against the sprawling medieval canvas of twelfth-century England, this is Ken Follett's historical masterpiece.

'The Happy Blue Couch' book event with author Jodyne Ferreira August 20th at Florey's!



Florey's Books welcomes local author Jodyne Ferreira as she discusses her new children's picture book, "The Happy Blue Couch".

***Saturday, August 20th, 2:00-4:00pm***

About the Book:

A little blue couch has many special purposes at the busy preschool it calls home. It provides a comfortable place for sick children to rest, a spot for little ones to sit after they dress up, and a place for all the children to line up their toys. But the couch is not just practical, it is magical too!

With help from their imaginations, the children transform the couch into a pretend bed, a big blue boat, a flying carpet, a car, and many other fun things. But when the couch begins to show its age and the teacher must make a difficult decision, it is not long before someone proves that love lasts forever.

In this charming children's tale, a magical and beloved blue couch fuels the imaginations of the children at a preschool.

About the Author:

Jodyne Ferreira taught preschool for over thirty years. Now retired, Jodyne is a grandmother of five and great-grandmother of one. She has lived in Half Moon Bay for her entire life and continues to be an active community member.
