Pacifica Culture Club! Discussion Topic: #realtalk - Effects of Electronic Communication, July 29th at Florey's!



Florey's welcomes you to our culture discussion club!

***Wednesday, July 29th 7:30pm-9pm***

Join Culture Club! A monthly social discussion of social issues at a local independent bookstore in Pacifica. Get to know neighbors, express your opinions and learn more about topics that matter. Every month I encourage those attending to do some self-guided "research" whether that be watching relevant movies, attending events, reading books, articles or watching informative videos. It's all fair game, whatever you see fit, and then bring what you found/learned to the group to discuss. Wine & light bites are always offered!

The topic of discussion this month is: #realtalk - the Effects of Electronic Communication. How are modern communication technologies impacting your life? Do you obsessively check your email or social media? Are you concerned about what information is gathered about you or your family, and by whom? Is the 'always-on' nature of electronic communication a positive or negative thing? Join us and discuss these and more related topics.

"Horace the Cow" Book Event with Author Julia Carmen, July 18th at Florey's!




Florey's Books welcomes local author Julia Carmen as she discusses her new children's book, "Horace the Cow: Have You Ever Seen a Cow Climb a Tree?".

***Saturday, July 18th, 2-4pm***

About the Book:

Have you ever seen a cow climb a tree?

No cow would climb a tree unless it was the right tree. No cow would consider climbing just any tree?

Once upon a time, there was a black cow named Horace. She was named by a young boy who loved her and so she loved her name. But because her name was Horace, she feared that no bull would ever ask her out, though admittedly she had never let any bull get to know her.

The little boy, whose name was Nakoa, visited Horace every day on his way home from school. Often when Nakoa went to sleep - and when Horace went to sleep, the two met each other in the real time of dreams. This is the way it is with friends.....


About the Author:

Julia Carmen has been a healer for over 20 years. Julia Carmen was born with a gift of a Curandera de Alma (Seer of the Soul). Her gift of being able to see a person's true soul/self has guided clients to quiet themselves to hear their own true divine soul/self.

"If You Ask Me" Book Event with Author Anna Boothe, July 12th at Florey's!



Florey's Books welcomes local author Anna Boothe as she discusses her new memoir, "If You Ask Me".

***Sunday, July 12th, 2-4pm***

About the Book:

From Ms. Boothe: Someone gave me a book with blank pages and, being a writer, I must fill them up with a story, my story. And now, some five years later, it is time to begin...

I don't want to write your standard autobiography, beginning with my birth and going on year by year to the here and now. But I want to record the things, the people and the moments sometimes with pictures and my poems, that mean the most to me, that I want to save and share with anyone who wants to read this.

I am not -nor do I think I will be- a famous person, so there is no ready captive audience for this. but I would like to write this in a way that makes you want to "ask me" and read on...

About the Author:

Ms. Boothe was born in Chicago and spent her childhood in Kansas City, MO. She received a Bachelor's degree in journalism, a Master's in English, and a Master's in counselling. She has also lived and taught in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. She is the founder of the Preserve Our Pier Supporters, which has generated almost $2 million in grants to repair the Pacifica Pier. She lives in Pacifica with her husband Gary, and their dog Louie.

About the Album:

Album title: The Lonely Candidate

This album was inspired by my travels around the world as well as romance and heartbreak. I express these themes through music as an easier way to tell these stories and in hopes that the listener will not only enjoy the music, but understands the messages behind them.

About the Artist:

I am a singer-songwriter and guitarist based in Pacifica. I'll be performing a few classic covers and original music, which are from my self-released second album, The Lonely Candidate, that came out this year.

"A Guided Tour of the Central San Francisco Bay" Book Event with Author Jason Lee Funk, June 27th at Florey's!



Florey's Books welcomes local author Jason Lee Funk as he discusses his new book, "A Guided Tour of the Central San Francisco Bay".

***Saturday, June 27th, 2-4pm***

About the Book:

This book is written from the point of view of someone who is sailing on the Bay and
looking over the water at a landmark, but you don't have to be a sailor, or even on the
water, to enjoy this book. The stories are just as entertaining and interesting for a
"landlubber" as they are for a sailor. In fact, one of the things you can do if you are
traveling around the Bay is take this book with you. When you arrive at one of the
landmarks I have written about, open the book to that section and let me share with
you what I have learned about the landmark you are visiting. This book is especially
organized to be used that way. On the next page is a map with numbered markers for
various landmarks. These markers will take you to a chapter that talks about that place
on the map.

So, whether you are sailing or walking or just relaxing at home, enjoy this guided tour
of the central San Francisco Bay.

About the Author:

Like many boys and some men, I have always had a certain fascination with the sea
and sailing. Of course, most boys have daydreams about pirates and the old three
masted square-rigged sailing ships we see in the movies, but to me sailboats also had
an allure of fun and adventure. Several years ago I finally decided to pursue my dream
and, on the advice of one of my friends, visited a military yacht club that gave
inexpensive sailing lessons. I took the basic course. Then I returned for an
intermediate course. Then I took yet another course. Next thing I knew I was sailing
the club's boats as an able crew member. I had learned how to sail and was "living the
dream", as they say, sailing on the San Francisco Bay.

So began my amateur research into the history and facts of things around the central
Bay. This was sort of like falling down the rabbit hole, because as soon as I learned
one thing, it made me curious about another. And so I started collecting in my mind a
small file of facts and figures. One of the more interesting things about studying history
is not so much learning about what you did not know, but learning about what you
thought you knew but really didn't. As someone who has lived in the Bay area for
several years I, like many others that live here, had "learned" many stories about the
area by word of mouth. In my research I discovered some of those stories were either
not completely accurate or were just plain wrong. So, even if you have lived in the Bay
area all your life, you can still learn something new.

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

We hope to see you!
