Pacifica Book Club: 'Y: The Last Man', June 28th at Florey's!



Florey's welcomes you to our book club!

***Tuesday, June 28th, 7:30pm-9:00pm***

Come by for a chat about our June book, 'Y: The Last Man' by Brian K. Vaughn & Pia Guerra.

Y: THE LAST MAN, winner of three Eisner Awards and one of the most critically acclaimed, best-selling comic books series of the last decade, is that rare example of a page-turner that is at once humorous, socially relevant and endlessly surprising. Written by Brian K. Vaughan (Lost, PRIDE OF BAGHDAD, EX MACHINA) and with art by Pia Guerra, this is the saga of Yorick Brown—the only human survivor of a planet-wide plague that instantly kills every mammal possessing a Y chromosome. Accompanied by a mysterious government agent, a brilliant young geneticist and his pet monkey, Ampersand, Yorick travels the world in search of his lost love and the answer to why he's the last man on earth.

June 2016 Poetry at Florey's!



Florey's Books invites you to our ongoing poetry event.

***Saturday, June 25th, 7:30-9:30pm***

The featured poets this month are: Richard Loranger and Ken Saffran. The featured poets will be followed by an open mic period. Open mic sign-up is first come, first served. This event is open to the public and free of charge. You are welcome to bring a snack or beverage to share.


From Sherri, the host:

" I invite you to join me, Aaron and our two fine featured poets, Richard Loranger and Ken Saffran, as they regale us with their poetic vision. Please bring a snack or drink to share, if you're able to, and some work of your own or a favorite poet's to add in your voice at open mic. It promises to be a fine and festive evening.

It is also Bob's birthday (he would have been 70), and I'm planning to read some of the poems he wrote in his early life. If you'd care to read something for him at open mic, it would be very welcome. Since he was my co-creator for this poetry series, and did so much to make our evenings welcoming, warm and smooth-running, it feels appropriate to salute him at this reading."

About the featured readers:

Richard Loranger is a writer, performer, visual artist, and all around squeaky wheel, currently residing in Oakland , CA . His new book of flash prose, Sudden Windows (Zeitgeist Press, 2016), has been enthusiastically received. He is also the author of the Poems for Teeth, The Orange Book, and nine chapbooks. Other recent work can be found in Oakland Review #2, Overthrowing Capitalism vol. 2 (Revolutionary Poets Brigade), and the new anthology The Careless Embrace of the Boneshaker (great weather for MEDIA). You can find more about his work and scandals at www.richardloranger.com.

Ken Saffran has poems published in Ambush, Amsterdam Quarterly, Before Passing (Great Weather for Media) and SF Peace And Hope. He lives in San Francisco because he can't afford it.

"Crossing the Lines" Book Event with Author Tony Press, June 25th at Florey's!



Florey's Books welcomes local author Tony Press as he discusses his new collection of short stories, "Crossing the Lines".

***Saturday, June 25th, 1:00-3:00pm***

About the Book:

"Gentle Reader, welcome to the tender-hearted stories of Tony Press. In Crossing the Lines, hippies, poets, wanderers and thieves steal our hearts, not to break them, but to expand their beating chambers. Tony Press writes with care and precision about the quiet moments that swiftly and un-expectantly recalibrate our wavering lives. The strengths of these stories rest in their good humor and close attention to how we fall in love and how that love transports us into the dark and thorny depths of our own wilderness. Tony Press is the perfect guide for these unforgettable adventures." - Amber Dermont, The Starboard Sea and Damage Control

About the Author:

Tony Acarasiddhi Press lives near San Francisco and tries to pay attention. Sometimes he does. During a period of meditation on a retreat in 2003 he could barely sit still because a story was spilling into his consciousness. At the final bell he raced outside and wrote it down as fast as he could. He’s been writing ever since, primarily short stories, but also poems and essays. Since 2004 his efforts have appeared online and in print close to 100 times, including journals from at least five different countries. In 2014, Boston Literary Magazine nominated one of his stories for the Pushcart Prize. A few years earlier, JMWW had nominated another story for the Million Writers Award. He continues to follow a Buddhist path (hence the name Acarasiddhi), and struggles to sit still even without the intrusion of a story. His personal mantra is “keep walking” and he will do that as long as he can.

We hope to see you!

Pacifica Book Club: 'The Autobiography of Malcolm X', May 31st at Florey's!



Florey's welcomes you to our book club!

***Tuesday, May 31st, 7:30pm-9:00pm***

Come by for a chat about our May book, 'The Autobiography of Malcolm X' by Malcolm X as told to Alex Haley.

With its first great victory in the landmark Supreme Court decision "Brown v. Board of Education "in 1954, the civil rights movement gained the powerful momentum it needed to sweep forward into its crucial decade, the 1960s. As voices of protest and change rose above the din of history and false promises, one voice sounded more urgently, more passionately, than the rest. Malcolm X once called the most dangerous man in America challenged the world to listen and learn the truth as he experienced it. And his enduring message is as relevant today as when he first delivered it.
In the searing pages of this classic autobiography, originally published in 1964, Malcolm X, the Muslim leader, firebrand, and anti-integrationist, tells the extraordinary story of his life and the growth of the Black Muslim movement to veteran writer and journalist Alex Haley . In a unique collaboration, Haley worked with Malcolm X for nearly two years, interviewing, listening to, and understanding the most controversial leader of his time.

"Lost in Venice" Book Event with Author Michelle Longega Wilson, May 28th at Florey's!



Florey's Books welcomes local author Michelle Longega Wilson, as she discusses her new book "Lost in Venice".

***Saturday, May 28th, 2-4pm***

About the book:

Lost in Venice is the second of the series “The Adventures of Giulia” and it talks about Giulia, who goes to Venice for Carnival to visit her cousin Isabella. Isabella is a new character and she will be with Giulia during all of her adventures in Venice. Giulia and Isabella are complete opposites, as you know Giulia is never afraid and she loves adventures, while Isabella is always a little insecure. Luckily Giulia’s magical unicorn Sparkle will always be there to help her when Giulia’s sense of adventures goes overboard. In Venice, Giulia will visit many great places like Rialto, Murano, the famous Peggy Guggenheim Collection and more. She will discover amazing things hidden in plain sight and get lost in the beautiful city. As always the book will give you a chance to learn things about culture and history and trust me, in Venice you can learn a lot! The book has been written by me, a 10 year old girl!

About the Author:

Michelle Longega Wilson is 10 years old. She loves to compete in tap, jazz dance, and musical theater. She also loves horseback riding. She is half Italian and half American but can speak French, Italian, and English. She likes to speak languages because it gives her the chance to understand and talk to more people. Of course she can also read more books, she loves to read! This is why she write books.

Local Forum: 'The Presidential Candidates', May 25th at Florey's!



Florey's welcomes you to our discussion group!

***Wednesday, May 25th, 7:30pm-9pm***

From the host, Amanda:

There's a ton going on these days worth talking about and It'd be great to dive back in. I know it's shorter notice than usual, and we didn't get to collectively decide on a topic but I think this is one we can all easily jump into. I'd like to discuss what's going on with the primaries. Let's talk about the issues surrounding it. What has it taken for the most controversial primary candidate ever to rise to popularity? Another interesting thing I heard was in West Virginia, swing voters show that if Bernie does not win the primaries, they would vote for Trump. I have my theories on this, but let's talk about that.
What would happen if Trump becomes president? What would happen if Hilary or Bernie became president?

There's a lot to go off of on here. Share anything interesting about this topic with the group before the meeting and I'll see you there!
