May 2018 Poetry at Florey's.



Florey's Books invites you to our ongoing poetry event!

***Saturday, May 26th, 7:30-9:30pm***

The featured poets this month are Tony Press and Jacki Rigoni.

From Sherri:

Dear Poets and Poetry Lovers,

In the merry month of May, we'll be celebrating the language of poetry at Florey's Book Company. Please consider joining Aaron and me as we welcome poets Tony Press and Jacki Rigoni, who are looking forward to meeting you, and sharing their work.

I also invite you to bring your own work to read at open mic (3 minutes, please), and, if you are able, a snack or beverage for the table.

About the featured poets:

TONY PRESS

Tony Press tries to pay attention. Sometimes he does. And sometimes, when he does, it leads to words on the page. Equinox and Solstice, an e-chapbook of his poems, hit the virtual world last year, courtesy of the journal Right Hand Pointing. He claims two Pushcart nominations, about 25 criminal trials, and 12 years in a single high school classroom. He lives over the hill, in beautiful Brisbane.

Since 2005, his poems have appeared in such fun places as Spitball; Turning Wheel; The Lake; 34th Parallel; Inkwell; Verse Wisconsin; Misty Mountain; Stare’s Nest; Grey Sparrow; Peacock Journal, and more.

He also writes fiction and his story collection Crossing the Lines is available in this very bookstore (other places, too, but we are here, tonight).

JACKI RIGONI

Jacki Rigoni writes within the found spaces of single parenting her three children in the San Francisco Bay area. She has an M.A. in English from UC Berkeley. A finalist for the 2018 Francine Ringold Award for New Writers, her poems appear or are forthcoming in Nimrod International Journal, Moon City Review, Poems-For-All, and her website, WomanUprising.com. An award-winning Creative Director and Copywriter by profession, Jacki’s other writing can be found on TV and the back of snack packaging.

Florey's Book Club: 'The Portrait of a Lady' May 17th!



Florey's welcomes you to our book club!

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

Come by for a chat about our May book, 'The Portrait of a Lady' by Henry James.

About the book:

An undisputed masterpiece, The Portrait of a Lady is arguably James's most popular work, and certainly the finest of his early novels. It focuses on Isabel Archer, a young, intelligent, and spirited American girl, determined to relish her first experience of Europe. She rejects two eligible suitors in her fervent commitment to liberty and independence, declaring that she will never marry. Thanks to the generosity of her devoted cousin Ralph, she is free to make her own choice about her destiny. Yet in the intoxicating worlds of Paris, Florence, and Rome, her fond illusions of self-reliance are twisted by the machinations of her friends and apparent allies. What had seemed to be a vista of infinite promise steadily closes around her and becomes instead a "house of suffocation."
Portrait of a Lady is at once a dramatic Victorian tale of betrayal and a wholly modern psychological study of a woman caught in a web of relations she only comes to understand too late.

About the author:

Henry James (1843-1916) spent his early life in America but often traveled with his celebrated family to Europe. After briefly attending Harvard, he began to contribute both criticism and tales to magazines. Later, he visited Europe and began Roderick Hudson. Late in 1875, he settled in Paris, where he met Turgenev, Flaubert, and Zola and wrote The American. In 1876, he moved to London, where two years later he achieved international fame with Daisy Miller. His other famous works include The Portrait of a Lady (1881), The Princess Casamassma (1886), The Wings of the Dove (1902), and The Golden Bowl (1904). In 1915, a few months before his death, he became a British subject.
