"Broadmoor Village" author event, Saturday, August 28th!

Florey's Books invites you to meet local author Dave Crimmen as he discusses his new book: "Images of America: Broadmoor Village".

***Saturday, August 28th, 2-4pm***

About the book: Broadmoor Village, the little community that embodies the American ethic of independence, survives despite neighboring annexations, budget crises, and even Mother Nature. This subdivision was built in San Mateo County by the Stoneson Company just after World War II, targeting returning veterans and their families. Established before Henry Doelger made neighboring Westlake, Westmoor, St. Francis, and other communities since annexed by Daly City, Broadmoor has repeatedly chosen to stay unincorporated and independent. This attitude has shaped Broadmoor through the years to assert its autonomous stature while surrounded by larger cities.

About the author: Author Dave Crimmen lived in Broadmoor Village for 30 years, where he graduated from Garden Village and Ben Franklin schools. Dave is a professional musician whose original music has been used in major motion pictures like The Game, starring Michael Douglas, and also in television shows like CBS's Cold Case and FOX's Melrose Place. This collection of images from the Broadmoor Police Department, Broadmoor Property Owner's Association, Westmoor Alumni, and the author's personal archives tell a real-life version of "David vs. Goliath."
