Not too late to sign up!
November 8, 2008|Posted in: green
In case you’re local and still interested, it is definitely not too late to sign up for my next two (non-writing) classes at the Alameda Adult School. I’m teaching on the following two Wednesday nights: 7 to 9 p.m. at the Central Avenue school site (Rm 330). You have to sign up to be in the class and I believe it is $15 per class. Must be 18 years old; sorry, no kids allowed (it’s the Adult School, silly.) Visit the link above to register online. See you then?
