Gospel of Everyone - book event with author Paul Totah, Mar. 18th at Florey's!

Florey's Books welcomes local author Paul Totah as he discusses his new book, "The Gospel of Everyone - A Poetic Retelling of the Gospel of Luke".

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

About the book:

With this poetic retelling of the Gospel of Luke, Paul Totah has provided a new lens with which to view familiar stories, and he
adds new meaning to the story of Jesus. The poems, ones that re-envision gospel stories as intimate news relayed by close friends, bring both humanity and immediacy to the gospels to help readers approach them as if for the first time. Ultimately, this work seeks to give a human face to Jesus along the lines of other artists and writers over the centuries who have worked to lift Christ out of iconic mythology and bring him back to his human origins and restore the power of his stories and journeys.

About the author:

The son of immigrants from Palestine, Paul Totah grew up a Roman Catholic and was educated by Jesuits at St. Ignatius College Preparatory in San Francisco, where he serves as director of communications and where he taught English for twenty-five years. He is the author of The San Francisco Fair: Treasure Island 1939–1940(1989) and Spiritus Magis: 150 Years of St. Ignatius College Preparatory (2005). He lives in Pacifica with his wife, Kathryn.
