Lorna Sheridan: Education Roundup, Oct. 31

Local government: If your teen is interested in issues surrounding local politics and civil service, they should check out Play Counties Work, a new video game about local government. icivics.org/games/counties-work

Program opportunity: A pilot program to expose young adults to opportunities in the water industry is being offered as a new Career Pathways Program in an extension of the Sonoma County Youth Ecology Corps. The program provides out-of-school young adults the opportunity to work for six months performing stream maintenance work for the Water Agency, and then work for an additional six months as an intern in one of several fields, including water mechanics, fleet mechanics, sanitation systems and fisheries. The 18-month pilot program is open to ages 18 to 24. youthecologycorps.org.

Speaker Series: On Nov. 7, the Presentation Speaker Series, along with Readers’ Books, will welcome Mark Lukach, who will read from and discuss “My Lovely Wife in the Psyche Ward.” Lukach is a Bay Area educator and writer, whose young wife experienced a devastating mental health crisis that changed both of their lives, as well as their beliefs about love, health, commitment and the value of sharing real and difficult stories. Donations offered at the door will be given to the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

Free bookmobile: The Free Bookmobile of Sonoma County is looking forward to helping people to start replacing books lost in the fires. They will be in our area on Saturday, Nov. 4. Look for the green van Kenwood Market from noon to 1 p.m.; at Glen Ellen Post Office from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.; and Boyes Fiesta Center from 3 to 5 p.m.
