Local Forum: 'Young at Heart', April 27th at Florey's!



Florey's welcomes you to our discussion group!

***Thursday, April 27th, 7:30pm-9:00pm***

We will be meeting to discuss the topic: Growing Up & Staying Youthful.

From Nico:

This is a topic I've personally been mulling over in my mind for the past year or so. I'm 24, and the kids I work with think that's ancient! Its funny to me because they have no idea what life has in store for them, and I'm sure 30 year olds look at me and say the same thing, and so on, and so on...

Growing up is tough, but the key to going through it with a sense of grace lies in staying youthful (and no, that does not mean plastic surgery!) The magic wonder of life only loses its magic and wonder when you choose not to believe in it anymore.

This is a discussion that doesn't really require research; more so, a reflection of one's own life.
If you need a place to start, here are some things to consider:

When was the moment I realized that I had to start being an adult?
What things have I found fun throughout my life?
If I didn't know when I was born, what age would I feel in my head?

And if these questions don't help you much, then please--in the privacy of your own home-- I suggest you sip a glass of wine, smile, and think back on those fond memories in your life to this song: Frank Sinatra- Young at Heart

Looking forward to learning with you all!

We hope to see you!

Pacifica Book Club: 'The Night Trilogy' April 25th at Florey's!



Florey's welcomes you to our book club!

***Tuesday, April 25th, 7:00pm-8:30pm***

Come by for a chat about our February book, 'The Night Trilogy' by Elie Wiesel.

About the book:

Night is one of the masterpieces of Holocaust literature. First published in 1958, it is the autobiographical account of an adolescent boy and his father in Auschwitz. Elie Wiesel writes of their battle for survival and of his battle with God for a way to understand the wanton cruelty he witnesses each day. In the short novel Dawn (1960), a young man who has survived World War II and settled in Palestine joins a Jewish underground movement and is commanded to execute a British officer who has been taken hostage. In Day (previously titled The Accident, 1961), Wiesel questions the limits of conscience: Can Holocaust survivors forge a new life despite their memories? Wiesel's trilogy offers insights on mankind's attraction to violence and on the temptation of self-destruction.

About the author:

Elie Wiesel (1928-2016) is the author of more than fifty books, including "Night," his harrowing account of his experiences in Nazi concentration camps. The book, first published in 1955, was selected for Oprah's Book Club in 2006, and continues to be an important reminder of man's capacity for inhumanity. Wiesel was Andrew W. Mellon Professor in the Humanities at Boston University, and lived with his family in New York City. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986.
