  • Recently, FilmDayton launched its first web-series.  FREAK CLUB was filmed in the Miami Valley and put together by local cast and crew.  FilmDayton says Freak Club offers intrigue, witty dialogue, ghost stories, and lots of fun. The series was an extension of FilmDayton's educational programming and matched professional and aspiring filmmakers together. Co-creator and Co-writer of the series, Alexandra Grizinski is a Springboro native and University of Dayton engineering grad.  Alexandra Grizinski is now a writer living and working in L.A. You can watch episodes of Freak Club on the FilmDayton web-site - FilmDayton.com
  • On this Sunday morning, we continue our series of faculty readings from this summer's Antioch Writers' Workshop with Matthew Goodman from his latest book 80 Days.  He begins by giving some background on this book's subject, Nellie Bly.
