August 2018 Poetry at Florey's.



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

***Saturday, August 25th, 7:30-9:30pm***

The featured poets this month are Judy Wells and Dale Jensen.

From Sherri:

Dear Poetry Community,

It's time to invite you to join me, Aaron, and our featured poets Judy Wells and Dale Jensen, for a celebration of the spoken word. I hope you'll consider joining us to hear these seasoned east bay poets.

It is always especially appreciated if you are able to bring a snack or drink for the table; feasting with poets and poetry lovers is a particular pleasure! And, of course and as always, you are invited to bring your own poetry to share at open mic (3 minutes, please).

---Special note: There will be no poetry reading in September---

About the featured poets:

JUDY WELLS

Judy Wells was born in San Francisco and educated at Stanford and UC Berkeley. Her 11th poetry collection, The Glass Ship (Sugartown), completes her trilogy of Irish-themed works, including Everything Irish and Call Home (Scarlet Tanager Books). Dear Phebe, a poetry and prose collection about her Dickinson ancestors, three sisters who traveled from Massachusetts to California in the 1860s to establish new lives, is forthcoming from Sugartown. Her poetry has recently appeared in Veils, Halos, and Shackles: International Poetry on the Oppression and Empowerment of Women; San Francisco Peace and Hope; California Quarterly; Marin Poetry Center Anthology; and Stanford Alumni Magazine. KPFA’s Nina Serrano has recorded Judy reading from The Glass Ship, Little Lulu Talks with Vincent Van Gogh, and The Old People Monologues. Her website is www.judywellspoet.com.

DALE JENSEN

Dale Jensen was born in Oakland, California, graduated from the University of California at Berkeley in 1971, and received a master’s degree in experimental psychology from the University of Toronto in 1973, with which he said goodbye to academia forever. In 1974, he embarked on a career with Social Security that lasted until 1999, when he took early retirement. He lives in Berkeley and is married to the poet Judy Wells.
Dale’s poetry, which is heavily influenced by the Surrealists and such cut-up writers as William Burroughs and Brion Gysin, has appeared in such magazines, journals, and anthologies as Talisman, Lost andFound Times, Ur-Vox, Poetry East, Inkblot, Convolvulus, Dirigible, and many others. He published and edited the experimental poetry magazine Malthus from 1986 through 1989 and continues to occasionally publish books through Malthus Press. He also has published seven books and three chapbooks of poetry: Thebes(1991), Bar Room Ballads (1992), The Troubles (1993), Twisted History (1999), Purgatorial (2004), Cyclone Fence (2007), Oedipus’ First Lover (2009), Auto Bio (2010), Yew Nork (2014), and Amateur Mythology(2017).

Florey's Book Club: 'The Murder of Roger Ackroyd' August 23rd!



Florey's welcomes you to our book club!

***Thursday, August 23rd, 7:00pm-8:30pm***

Come by for a chat about our August book, 'The Murder of Roger Ackroyd' by Agatha Christie.

About the book:

Roger Ackroyd knew too much. He knew that the woman he loved had poisoned her brutal first husband. He suspected also that someone had been blackmailing her. Then, tragically, came the news that she had taken her own life with an apparent drug overdose.

However the evening post brought Roger one last fatal scrap of information, but before he could finish reading the letter, he was stabbed to death. Luckily one of Roger's friends and the newest resident to retire to this normally quiet village takes over--none other than Monsieur Hercule Poirot.

About the author:

Agatha Christie is the most widely published author of all time, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare. Her books have sold more than a billion copies in English and another billion in a hundred foreign languages. She died in 1976 after a prolific career spanning six decades.
