Top 5 – Books

By Diana Ross | Posted in Staff Blogs | No Comments

I like to consider myself an avid reader.  If I had to choose 5 books from my shelf to have while stranded on a deserted island (based on re-readability, love of characters/world/subject matter) , I’d choose: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep – Philip K. Dick Lord of the Rings/Hobbit – J. R. R. Tolkien Alice’s Adventures […]

Truth Is More Compelling Than Fiction

By Dyana Neal | Posted in Host Blogs, Interviews | No Comments

From October 26-November 4, Dundalk Community Theatre is presenting Titanic: The Musical  by Peter Stone and Maury Yeston.
