"Growing Up in San Francisco's Western Neighborhoods" Event with Author Frank Dunnigan, Dec. 16th at Florey's!



!!! LAST MINUTE ADDITION !!!

Florey's Books welcomes author Frank Dunnigan, as he discusses his new book "Growing Up in San Francisco's Western Neighborhoods: Boomer Memories from Kezar Stadium to Zim's Hamburgers"

***Tuesday, December 16th, 5-7pm***

About the Book:

From football games at Kezar Stadium to a perfectly broiled Zim burger, San Franciscans have fond memories of the decades after World War II. Dressing up for a movie at the Fox Theatre on Market Street, catching the train at the old S.P. Station on Third and Townsend, taking the streetcar downtown to see magnificent displays in the Emporium's windows or spending a day at Golden Gate Park, the "outside lands" of San Francisco were teeming with youngsters and the young-at-heart alike. Western Neighborhoods Project columnist and San Francisco native Frank Dunnigan offers a charming collection of nostalgic vignettes about the thriving Western communities of unforgettable people and places that defined generations.

About the Author:

Frank Dunnigan was born in San Francisco during the baby boom years of the 1950s to a family that first settled there in 1860. His education began in Kindergarten at Parkside School before moving on to St. Cecilia's and then to St. Ignatius College Prep and the University of San Francisco. He worked as a bank auditor and as a retail training manager before joining the federal government in the 1990s. His monthly history column STREETWISE has been published by the Western Neighborhoods Project ( www.outsidelands.org ) since January 2009, and he has contributed both text and photo content to several local history books published by other authors.

"The Devil's Glove" Book Event with Author "Cousin Vinny" Agnello, Nov. 28th & 29th at Florey's!



Florey's Books welcomes Florida-based author Louis "Cousin Vinny" Agnello, as he discusses his new book "The Devil's Glove".

***Friday & Saturday, November 28th & 29th, 10am-6pm***

(This will be an informal all-day meet & greet)

About the Book:

Dispirited by years of disappointment, minor league baseball player Billy Green summons a mysterious stranger who promises to help him cheat his way on to the big stage of major league baseball if he lives up to the terms of a nefarious agreement. At first, Green complies but later reneges, creating the catalyst that propels the action forward in this modern-day morality tale that pits God versus Satan in a battle over the soul of an innocent boy who stumbles across Green's cursed baseball glove. A timeless tale that will renew your faith in God and human nature.

About the Author:

A 1992 graduate of Western Connecticut State University, Louis “Cousin Vinny” Agnello Jr. is the heir of his late father’s writing dream, though the path to achieving that goal was circuitous. He spent one year studying coaching at Southern Connecticut State University before becoming a pioneer of the lucrative male exotic dancing fad that swept the nation in the early 1980′s. Later he would become the outspoken and controversial “Stripper King of New York.”

"Reading Robert Frost 2" discussion event with poet Casey FitzSimons, November 22nd at Florey’s!



Florey’s Book Company welcomes Redwood City poet Casey FitzSimons for the second in a series of discussions of Robert Frost’s poems. Casey is a widely published poet writing in form and free verse. She has a background in visual art, editing, and criticism. Her chapbooks include Standing in the Open House (2013) and The Breeze Was Mine: Poems in Form (2013). She has a master’s degree in Fine Arts from San José State University.

***Saturday, November 22nd, 2:00–4:00 pm***

From Casey:
“Frost’s “talking poems” tell stories of life in the New England farming community, but delve into universal themes of death, responsibility, and self-sufficiency. We’ll read and discuss

Death of the Hired Man
Home Burial
Two Tramps in Mud Time

Some of the topics we’ll touch on are the use of dialogue in poetry, Frost’s supposed preference for everyday language, and blank verse (meter without rhyme).”

=============

This is a free discussion event. Non-poets are welcome. Poem copies will be provided. No need to commit to other sessions. Walk-ins are welcome, but if you know you’ll attend, RSVP to casey.fitzsimons@gmail.com or (650) 224-9857, or contact her with specific questions.
