"A Field Guide to Manzanitas" Book Event with Authors Tom Parker & Mike Vasey, August 29th at Florey's!



Florey's Books welcomes local authors Tom Parker and Mike Vasey as they discuss their new book, "A Field Guide to Manzanitas".

***Saturday, August 29th, 2-4pm***

About the Book:

Manzanitas are the familiar shrub with red bark and are the "rock stars" of woody shrub diversity in western North America. Ranging from the Sierra Nevada Mountains to coastal bluffs along the Pacific, from temperate rainforests along the North Coast to arid mountain slopes in Southern California, a wealth of manzanita species and subspecies can be found in an astonishingg arrayof environments. The Bay Area has over half the species reachable by short drives to our natural areas. Two Pacifica residents, Tom Parker and Mike Vasey, will talk about their adventures learning about manzanitas, their ecology and evolution, and talk about the field guide. Seemingly difficult for many botanists, the field guide has a number of features to make it easy to identify these beautiful native plants.

About the Authors:

Tom Parker has been a biology professor at San Francisco State University since 1980. He was raised in Texas, attended the University of Texas, Austin, and discovered California in graduate school at UC Santa Barbara. Currently only 9 manzanita species occupy his front yard.

Michael Vasey is an ecologist and conservation biologist. A long time lecturer at San Francisco State in the Biology Department, he is also the Director of the San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research reserve. He obtained his AB from Dartmouth College, an MA in Ecology and Evolution from San Francisco State, and his Ph.D. from the University of California Santa Cruz.

Pacifica Culture Club! Discussion Topic: Changing Views of Gender Roles, August 26th at Florey's!



Florey's welcomes you to our culture discussion club!

***Wednesday, August 26th, 7:30pm-9pm***

Join Culture Club! A monthly social discussion of social issues at a local independent bookstore in Pacifica. Get to know neighbors, express your opinions and learn more about topics that matter. Every month I encourage those attending to do some self-guided "research" whether that be watching relevant movies, attending events, reading books, articles or watching informative videos. It's all fair game, whatever you see fit, and then bring what you found/learned to the group to discuss.

The topic of discussion this month is: The Changing Views of Gender Roles. How do attitudes to gender roles impact us? Whether it is employment, household duties, or even how we interact with others, do societal expectations effect your behavior? In what ways are general attitudes towards gender roles changing or staying the same? Join us and discuss these and other related topics.

"Ongoing Adventures of Mike Roman" Book Event with Author Michael Romano, August 1st at Florey's!



Florey's Books welcomes local author Michael Romano as he discusses his new children's book, "Ongoing Adventures of Mike Roman".

***Saturday, August 1st, 1-3pm***

About the Book:

When fairy tales...and legends started, perhaps there was a basis of truth...

This is the tale of a young man who thought to himself... "I have to find out whether things like 'Second Star to the Right' really had a beginning in somewhere other than a writer's mind....

If that all those tales we've been told
throughout the years are just that ... tales ...
or are they in fact, truth, only a bit mixed up from all retelling by perhaps hundreds of years to those mixed up stories today. But maybe ... just, maybe ...they are true."

Young Mike is about to find out.

The topic of discussion this month is: #realtalk - the Effects of Electronic Communication. How are modern communication technologies impacting your life? Do you obsessively check your email or social media? Are you concerned about what information is gathered about you or your family, and by whom? Is the 'always-on' nature of electronic communication a positive or negative thing? Join us and discuss these and more related topics.
