Local Forum: 'Beauty & the Eye of the Beholder', August 24th at Florey's!



Florey's welcomes you to our discussion group!

***Thursday, August 24th, 7:30pm-9:00pm***

We will be meeting to discuss the topic: Beauty and the Eye of the Beholder.

From Nico:

Good Evening Everyone!

Once again, this topic is pretty open ended. Our hustle and bustle lifestyles really limit us from hitting the pause button to appreciate the beauty in art, people, or even the environment. The funny thing about beauty, is that it's also subjective, so what's beautiful to me, may be butt ugly to you.

And that's where the Local Forum comes in. For this meeting, let's get a chance to share stories on what we find beautiful in life, and maybe in turn, find out new beautiful things we should seek out.

Questions to consider
- what's your preferred medium of art? (Music, written word, pictures)
- what's one thing that just doesn't seem that appealing to you.
- can anything really be objectively beautiful or ugly?

Florey's Book Club: 'December Boys' August 17th!



Florey's welcomes you to our book club!

***Thursday, August 17th, 7:00pm-8:30pm***

Come by for a chat about our August book, 'December Boys' by Joe Cliford.

About the book:

Jay Porter, the newest employee at NorthEastern Insurance in New Hampshire, is investigating an accident claim when he learns the teenager behind the wheel was arrested for minor drug possession and sentenced to a hardcore behavioral modification center. At the county courthouse, Jay meets Nicki, a young college intern, who tips him off to a possible scandal--first-time juvenile offenders being shipped to private institutions for political kickbacks. He learns that long-time family nemeses, Adam and Michael Lombardi, may have a stake in the scheme. Is Jay's mission to help these kids a legitimate crusade? Or is his thirst for revenge driven by the guilt he feels over his own junkie brother's death? These questions conspire to tear apart tranquility and drive a wedge between Jay and his wife Jenny. With help from new friend Nicki, and a couple of old friends, Jay finds himself thrust back into a past he had hoped to leave behind, putting everything--and everyone he loves--at risk in pursuit of the truth.

About the author:

From homeless junkie to successful author, Joe Clifford has dedicated his life to education and the craft of writing and helping other ex-junkies find a voice and a platform for their creative energies. He is the author of several acclaimed books, including Lamentation and December Boys in the Jay Porter series. He lives with this wife and two sons in the San Francisco Bay Area.
