Southern Door senior Austin Claflin dedicates an afternoon to discussing his recently published historical fiction novel Rebel and Roman, set during the Gallic War of 52 BC at the end of Julius Caesar’s campaign of conquest.

Third Avenue Playhouse presents a reading of Martin McDonagh’s dark comedy to the stage during the final weekend of its Winter Play Reading Festival. The story is set on a small Aran Islands community off the west coast of Ireland in the 1930s, where residents eagerly anticipate the arrival of a Hollywood film crew interested in recording a documentary about life on the islands. No one is more excited, though, than an orphaned boy who must face his mean-spirited and rumor-starved community. 7:30 pm.
Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, twin brothers Adam and David Moss bring rich harmonies and thoughtful songs accompanied by guitar, cello, violin and banjo to the Door County Brewing Co. on Saturday night. 7 – 9 pm.
