'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 places he frequents have been places he has walked for years. As he visit his walking areas,sometimes twice a day, coyotes became more familiar with him coming out of hiding in his presence. So naturally Oscar began to bring a camera, capturing photos and learning more about the creatures he documented through his camera.

View his wondrous photography in his book, "Coyote Grayshadow." The book is available at Florey's Book Co. and the author will be on hand to sign & discuss his book on August 27. Come meet Oscar and hear his stories of the natural wildlife that surrounds us.

'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.

Pacifica Book Club: 'Never Let Me Go', July 26th at Florey's!



Florey's welcomes you to our book club!

***Tuesday, July 26th, 7:30pm-9:00pm***

Come by for a chat about our July book, 'Never Let Me Go' by Kazuo Ishiguro.

From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day and When We Were Orphans, comes an unforgettable edge-of-your-seat mystery that is at once heartbreakingly tender and morally courageous about what it means to be human.
Hailsham seems like a pleasant English boarding school, far from the influences of the city. Its students are well tended and supported, trained in art and literature, and become just the sort of people the world wants them to be. But, curiously, they are taught nothing of the outside world and are allowed little contact with it.
Within the grounds of Hailsham, Kathy grows from schoolgirl to young woman, but it's only when she and her friends Ruth and Tommy leave the safe grounds of the school (as they always knew they would) that they realize the full truth of what Hailsham is.
Never Let Me Go breaks through the boundaries of the literary novel. It is a gripping mystery, a beautiful love story, and also a scathing critique of human arrogance and a moral examination of how we treat the vulnerable and different in our society. In exploring the themes of memory and the impact of the past, Ishiguro takes on the idea of a possible future to create his most moving and powerful book to date.
