Dorothy’s Dictionary by EM Lewis – Angry high schooler Zan (Benicio Delgado) is forced to help Dorothy (Lori Van Dreal), an ailing librarian. Each of them might have what the other needs if they can find the words. A story about how good books, careful listening, friendship and kindness can help even when you’re lost.

Crossroads at Chambersburg by Fred Cooprider – Frederick Douglass and John Brown were dedicated to the abolition of slavery and in August, 1859, Brown invited Douglass and Shields Green, a fugitive slave, to meet him and his lieutenant, John Henry Kagi, at an abandoned stone quarry in Chambersburg, PA.
