Growing up in San Francisco / St. Cecilia Parish - Two-book event with author Frank Dunnigan, Dec. 7th at Florey's!



Florey's Books welcomes author Frank Dunnigan as he discusses his two new books, "Growing Up in San Francisco: More Boomer Memories from Playland to Candlestick Park" and "San Francisco's St. Cecilia Parish: A History"

***Wednesday, December 7th, 7pm***

About the books:

Growing Up in San Francisco:

Newcomers and visitors can still enjoy iconic San Francisco with activities like riding a cable car or taking in the view from Twin Peaks. But San Franciscans cherish memories of a place quite different. They reminisce about seafood dinners at A. Sabella's on Fisherman's Wharf, the enormous Christmas tree in Union Square's City of Paris department store and taking a handful of dimes to Playland-at-the-Beach for arcade games and cotton candy. In his second volume of these unforgettable stories, local author and historian Frank Dunnigan vividly recalls the many details that made life special in the City by the Bay for generations.

St. Cecilia's Parish:

Originally housed in a two-story home and then in an old converted schoolhouse along Taraval Street in 1917, San Francisco s St. Cecilia Church today stands as a cultural pillar and architectural gem of the Parkside District. The parish continually grew to meet the demands of its members, despite the hardships brought on by events like the Great Depression and both world wars. Through years of expansions, new construction and additions, the parish remains an active gathering place for thousands of people. Local author Frank Dunnigan utilizes community remembrances and photos from dozens of different sources to tell the story of a vibrant parish that continues to live up to its motto: The Finest, the Greatest and the Best.

About the author:

Baby boomer Frank Dunnigan has family roots in San Francisco that can be traced all the way back to 1860. A graduate of St. Ignatius College Prep and the University of San Francisco, he spent more than twenty-five years as a bank auditor and a corporate trainer, and is now a recent retiree after a career with the federal government. He has authored two other books on San Francisco history for The History Press, and writes a monthly column, STREETWISE, for the Western Neighborhoods Project.

'Ivey and the Airship' Book Event with Author Cheryl Ammeter, Nov. 19th at Florey's!



Florey's Books welcomes local author Cheryl Ammeter as she discusses her novel, "Ivey and the Airship"

***Saturday, November 19th, 2-4pm***

About the book:

Coming of age presents a dilemma for Ivey Thornton. She’s a spirited girl with more than her share of strength and intelligence, but no interest in courtship or marriage. Ivey dreams of following in her father’s footsteps, tracking the unknown species of flora and fauna that threaten the world of Aether. Her plans are upended when Arvel Thornton mysteriously arranges her engagement to the reclusive heir of Fenchurche Industries. She boards the airship Monarch with the intention of helping Miles Fenchurche discover a happier future, as long as it doesn’t include her. But something evil has stowed away on Miles’ ship and if Ivey doesn’t learn how to trust him, the greatest adventure of her life might be her last.

About the author:

Cheryl Ammeter is an award-winning scriptwriter who worked for seven seasons on the globally acclaimed children’s program, Barney & Friends. At Radio Disney, she wrote and performed in a wide variety of Disney features. One of her biggest successes at Radio Disney was Generation Girl Theatre, a series of episodic radio plays based on Mattel’s Generation Girls Barbie® books. After years of adhering to production budgets and schedules, her larger-than-life imagination has finally been set free in Ivey and the Airship.

This sci-fi fantasy novel is the first in a five book series called Aether’s Edge. Cheryl is currently at work on book two, Masters of Misfortune.

Pacifica Book Club: 'To Kill a Mockingbird' Nov. 3rd at Florey's!




Florey's welcomes you to our book club!

***Thursday, November 3rd, 7:30pm-9:00pm***

Come by for a chat about our November book, 'To Kill a Mockingbird' by Harper Lee.

About the book:

The unforgettable novel of a childhood in a sleepy Southern town and the crisis of conscience that rocked it, To Kill A Mockingbird became both an instant bestseller and a critical success when it was first published in 1960. It went on to win the Pulitzer prize in 1961 and was later made into an Academy Award-winning film, also a classic.

Compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving, To Kill A Mockingbird takes readers to the roots of human behavior-to innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred, humor and pathos. Now with over 15 million copies in print and translated into forty languages, this regional story by a young Alabama woman claims universal appeal. Harper Lee always considered her book to be a simple love story. Today it is regarded as a masterpiece of American literature.

About the author:

Nelle Harper Lee is known for her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel To Kill a Mockingbird, her only major work. In 1999, it was voted "Best Novel of the Century" in a poll by Library Journal. Ms. Lee was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom for her contribution to literature in 2007. Her father was a lawyer who served in the Alabama state legislature from 1926 to 1938. As a child, Lee was a tomboy and enjoyed the friendship of her schoolmate, Truman Capote. After completing To Kill a Mockingbird, Lee accompanied Capote to Holcomb, Kansas, to assist him in researching his bestselling book, In Cold Blood.
