January 2015 Poetry at Florey's!

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

***Saturday, January 31st, 7:30-9:30pm***

From Sherri:

Though continuingly astonished by the swift passage of time, it is, indeed, time for the first poetry reading of the new year at Florey's Books! If it's been a while since you've joined us, consider coming to this celebration of language and poetry, and if you've been with us for previous readings, consider helping us welcome in the new, poetic year. Enliven the celebration by bringing a snack or beverage to share. These evenings feature wonderful poetry, light refreshments, convivial company, conversation with like-minded others, an open mic to share your own or your favorite poet's work, and an opportunity to support a brave and staunchly independent book store.

About the featured poets:


In her poetry, Kari Flickinger makes use of form and sound to evoke the emotions of her observations on daily life: at times the mundane bits, and sometimes in her unique attempt at grasping toward the infinite. She has been published in The Falcon Scratch, and Susurrus Literary Magazines and won an honorable mention in the first annual Diablo Valley College Literary Contest. Her lyrics and music have been featured in a documentary by journalist Peter Laufer. She works as a tutor living in the Bay Area with her flat-faced black cat, Oscar and her computer-programming fella, Bill. Also, her inexplicable passion for ocean critters compels her to paint pictures of jellyfish, often.


Born in Hong Kong, raised in the Philippines and educated in the United States, Christina Lloyd holds an MA in Hispanic languages and literatures from U.C. Berkeley, and an MA in creative writing from Lancaster University (U.K.). In addition to publishing two chapbooks, her work appears in various journals, including The North.


We hope to see you!
