"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.

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!

"That is the Question" Shakespeare Boardgame Event with Game Designer John Ahlbach, May 7th at Florey's!



Florey's Books welcomes local game creator John Ahlbach, and we invite you to join in and play his board game: "That is the Question: A Game of Shakespeare Knowledge" in celebration of the birthday of William Shakespeare.

***Saturday, May 7th, 7pm***

About the game:

'That is the Question' is a fun journey through all things Shakespeare.

The game's 500 questions come with a multiple-choice option that players with less experience can use to level the playing field against those with more expertise. The questions cover the plots, language and characters of major and minor plays. They cover Shakespeare on stage and in film in our own time.

Knowledge and educated guessing do not always win in That is the Question. Luck must be with you, too, as you must land on the right spaces to win the two of each type of Character Card needed for victory.

So, when Juliet asks, "What satisfaction canst thou have tonight?", the answer is, play That is the Question with your friends or family!

About the author/creator:

John Ahlbach is a teacher at Archbishop Riordan High School in San Francisco. He wrote the 500 questions used in That is the Question: A Game of Shakespeare Knowledge. The game board and cards were designed by Mona Toft, a graphic artist in St. Paul , MN. Much of the profits from this game will go to Friends: The National Association of Young People Who Stutter, of which John is a co-founder.

Dear Friends in Poetry,

Today, William Shakespeare's birthday (as near as can be figured), I want to invite you to join us at Florey's Books next Saturday, to celebrate the Bard, and bring down the curtain on National Poetry Month. I hope you've all been doing your part; reading, reciting and writing poetry whenever and wherever possible, and sharing the lovely lilt of language with everyone you know.

For this next poetic evening, Sandra Anfang, Cordelia Leoncio and I will bring touches of sweet harmony to your ears, and I hope you'll bring your own notes of music for open mic (3 minutes, please! I WILL remember to bring the hook this time!). Bring poems inspired by or for William Shakespeare, poems about poems and writing poems, or anything you choose. Please also bring, if you can, some snacks or drinks to grace the table so we can eat and drink together.
