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.

"Coffeehouse" book event with author Anna Boothe, July 16th at Florey's!



Florey's Books welcomes local author Anna Boothe as she discusses her new novel, "Coffeehouse".

***Saturday, July 16th, 2:00-4:00pm***

About the Book:

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to visit a coffeehouse in the San Francisco Haight/Ashbury during the Hippie Era? COFFEEHOUSE will take you there. Written by the manager of a coffeehouse on Haight Street during this golden era, COFFEEHOUSE is the "real dope" on the Hippies of Haight Street. The story features Susan, an artist who struggles to keep her marriage to Sam, a shoe salesman who beats her up in a fight she initiated, Ishmael and Sarah the black and white hippie couple who manage the coffeehouse and poetry readings; Bob their gentleman bouncer and James, their soul brother dealer and Buck the black cloud who makes his last stand on a drunken New Years' Eve. This is the "Gone With the Wind" of the Hippie Era, the last stand of grass and poetry before the inevitable rush of the rich to this famous street, gradually nudging the Coffeehouse, book store, bars and smoke shop off the street, making this the last testament of one of the most important eras in recent history, when during a few years we have the rebirth of poetry readings, grass but not acid or hard drugs, psychedelic art and a return of the mural, communal living shelters and soup kitchens. and the Peace Movement Anna Boothe, manager of the coffeehouse, won a PEN Working Writers Grant for this book and now it is ready for your vicarious visit to the Coffeehouse during its Holiday poetry reading, visits by the Park Police and the death of James, symbolic of the death of the Coffeehouse which follows.

About the Author:

Anna Boothe managed the "Coffeehouse" on San Francisco's Haight Street during the last days of the Hippie era and tells all in this novel. She has a bachelor's degree in Journalism from the University of Missouri (where we dreamed of visiting the "hippie Haight. She taught writing at the University of Missouri and the University of Colorado before coming to the "University of the Street" and taking notes for this novel. Most of the characters (besides Ishmael and Sarah who are fictional) and incidents in the novel are real and will bring back memories to those in the area during this period. For those not here, it will give them a chance to sit and have a cup at the COFFEEHOUSE.

We hope to see you!

Free Lecture and Book Signing - Vision for Life



Loosen up your neck - the gateway to your eyes!

Join Meir Schneider, PhD, LMT, author of Vision for Life: 10 Steps to Natural Eyesight Improvement, to find out how easy-to-perform movement and vision exercises can work together to heal your body and eyes. Dr. Schneider will share new information about how the body and eyes are interrelated and how working with each one affects the healing of the other, such as how you can improve circulation to your eyes by loosening tension in your neck and back.

With the amount of time that people - especially children and teens whose vision is still developing - spend looking at computers, phones, and other screens, protecting and improving our vision is a more significant health issue than ever.

Meir Schneider healed himself of congenital blindness and developed an original holistic approach to health. The Meir Schneider Self-Healing Method is a unique combination of therapeutic massage, movement, and natural vision improvement exercises for prevention and rehabilitation of degenerative conditions. Meir is determined to revolutionize eye care and teach the world that vision doesn’t have to deteriorate - it can be improved!

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!
