Backpocket Crosswords -Book event with author Joanne Shwed, May 5th at Florey's.

Florey's Books welcomes local author Joanne Shwed as she discusses her book, "Backpocket Crosswords: Handmade Puzzles".
It's also Joanne's 65th birthday party!

***Saturday, May 5th, 2-4pm***

About the book:

Joanne Shwed has created these 24 handmade puzzles with common words and user-friendly clues. This book is dedicated to the Radiation Oncology Department at Seton Medical Center (Daly City, California). While Joanne and her husband Tom Ekkens waited for his radiation treatments, they (and others in the waiting room) worked on the clues, which seemed to calm their nerves, raise their spirits, and even get a couple of laughs.

About the author:

Joanne Shwed and Tom Ekkens have lived in Pacifica since 1989. Through her business, Backspace Ink, she has provided editing and publishing services to authors since 1985. She has written several short stories and essays, some of which have won writing awards. Joanne (and friends) love to play music and, for 25 years, they volunteered for Bread & Roses, which provides entertainment to “shut-ins” in nursing and convalescent homes and hospitals.


We hope to see you!
