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 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 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.

We hope to see you!
