“Where Will Future Writers Come From?” is the title of a talk Jeannie Kaplan will give Jan. 11 at the clubhouse. The talk, which will address writing as one discipline taught in public schools, will come at the end of a meeting that will begin with a social at 5:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 6 and Kaplan’s talk.
“Public education has been my passion for as long as I can remember,” Kaplan says. “I strongly believe that public education is a major cornerstone of our democracy.”
Kaplan has long and strong ties to public education. Her parents both taught at public school in Ohio, where she attended public schools. Her two children attended public schools in Denver and Washington, D.C.
Kaplan has worked in television news and in politics and she served on the board of Denver Public Schools for eight years. She currently writes a blog titled Kaplan for Kids.
“As a school board member I have worked to ensure more transparency by having our work sessions televised, by insisting on an open public process regarding school closures, school co-sharings, and dispensing of vacant school properties and by asking touch questions.”
The dinner meeting is open to members and their invited guests, and the cost is $16 per person plus $4 for those who would like wine. Reservations can be made by contacting Faith Marcovecchio at firstname.lastname@example.org or by paying online via PayPal. This event replaces the brunch that had been scheduled for Jan. 9.
Bookings are closed for this event.
