"Chasing Serenity" Event with Author A.O. Sullivan, March 4th at Florey's!

Florey's Books welcomes local author A.O. Sullivan, as she discusses her new book "Chasing Serenity: Journal of My Son's Addiction"

***Wednesday, March 4th, 7pm-8:30pm***

About the book:

Chasing Serenity, an intimate and mystical tale, is personal, relatable, moving, and immensely readable. It is an inspiring and thought-provoking book that approaches addiction and codependence from a perspective that many may not consider.

Author A. O. Sullivan recounts the tale of Maya C., who finds herself on a mythical, allegorical journey of self-discovery and recovery after she picks up her son, Frankie, from jail. If her son is to integrate into the "real" world, she must confront her own demons, and thus learns to use the unseen forces of universe to heal their relationship damaged by years of drug addiction. Determined to bring her son back from his self inflicted hell and understand how she created the "monster", as one therapist put it, she goes deep into the wicked web of her psyche during her walks in the woods.

Chasing Serenity takes you on a suspenseful and mysterious ride oscillating between the drudgery of real life legal battles, deep friendships with the Circle Sisters, and encounters with natural and archetypal personifications like Raven and Darkness who assist her in repairing her own broken heart, mending her fragmented family and confronting the stigma of drug addiction.

About the author:

A.O. Sullivan is an artist, therapist and healing guide. She has 30 years experience helping people realize their true natures through art, mindfulness and deep healing work. She lives with her husband in Pacifica, California where they both delight in exploring the mountain trails and noticing the synchronicities of the natural world.
