Future Plans
Although we do not yet have the funding to set up tours on our own, we are making appeals to government organizations and foundations to establish educational tours to colleges and high schools to present our informative productions of Mark Twain's ChaptersFrom My Autobiography, Voices From Guantanamo and T. H. White's The Book of Merlyn. This is in keeping with our mission to promote literacy and encourage people of all ages to pick up a book and read!
