  • 📖 Book Club : The Nickel Boys

    Burlingame, CA

    The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead Hardcover, 213 pages The long string of horrors that took place at the Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys wasn't a secret, but it might as well have been. Former students of the Florida reform school had spoken out for years about the brutal beatings that they endured at the hands of sadistic employees, but it wasn't until 2012, when University of South Florida anthropologists began to uncover unmarked graves on the school's campus, that the world began to care. The discoveries weren't news to the "White House Boys," a group of men who say they survived brutal assaults by Dozier staffers in a school building known as the White House. The men had raised the alarm for years, but their testimonies were essentially shrugged off. As Colson Whitehead writes in his stunning new novel, inspired by the revelations about the Dozier School, "Plenty of boys had talked of the secret graveyard before, but as it had ever been ... no one believed them until someone else said it." In Whitehead's novel, set in the early 1960s, the reformatory in question is called the Nickel Academy, named after a former leader of the school, although some students say it's really "because their lives weren't worth five cents." The novel follows Elwood Curtis, a young man whose dreams of going to college are dashed when he's sentenced to do time at the school.

  • 6th Annual "Spring Forward" Celebration in Half Moon Bay

    Half Moon Bay State Beach

    ➜ Use the comments area below to coordinate carpool plans. ➜ What to bring: Layers! Firewood if you have any. For the moment of sunset: noisemakers, appropriate libations (discreetly carried and displayed, of course). ➜ Please change your RSVP if you're not coming after all, so we have some idea how many to expect at Cameron's. Don't be a no-show! ➜ Please bring cash - and small bills for change - for dinner if you're coming to Cameron's! If we share one or more bills, find your items on the receipt and add 30% to cover tax and tip. Thanks for your cooperation on this! They've graciously set the back room aside for us - just like last year - so let's take good care of them! ABOUT THIS EVENT: What better way to commemorate the start of Daylight Savings Time and the extra hour of evening daylight, than by watching the sun set over the Pacific Ocean with some great friends - and then enjoying unhealthy English food at "The Disneyland of Pubs"? Does it get better than that? We'll watch the sun set over the ocean at 7:11 pm at Half Moon Bay State Beach, an hour later than it set the day before at 6:11 pm, then we'll have dinner at Cameron's at 7:45 pm. The "Ocean Challenge" starts at 6:45 pm. Who can brave 46˚ocean water at least to your knees? You can use the restrooms to change into and out of appropriate clothing for the challenge! Cameron's is located at 1410 South Cabrillo Highway in Half Moon Bay, California 94019.
