Marjorie Book Continuing Education
Marjorie Book Continuing Education’s mission is to bring people with and without disabilities together through continuing education classes, service learning projects and theatrical productions in both face-to-face and virtual settings. Our group is volunteer-driven and keeps its administrative overhead very low with a volunteer executive director. In recent times, Marjorie Book has delivered a mixture of outdoor service projects at the Mill Creek Trail and Homeless Coalition, theatrical rehearsals and productions, a poetry class, a virtual film class and a table top role playing group. Additionally, local writer, Al Landen, has been teaching a creative writing class. Marjorie Book has a diverse membership ranging in age from 15 to 81 and representing various abilities and physical and intellectual disabilities.
