On Saturday Oct 7 at 10:00 a.m. Cinematique’s Coffee & Conversation Series presents,

TRAFFICKING: A Human-Interest Program by Melody Dean Dimick


More frightening than what we see in scary movies or on Halloween store shelves are real monsters- human traffickers skulking in the shadows and walking among us daily. The Florida Department of Children and Families reported a 54% increase in human trafficking cases in our state in 2016. The state of Florida ranks third for instances of reported traffickers. This will be the topic of the next installment of Cinematique’s Coffee & Conversation Series.

Melody Dean Dimick has written extensively on the subject of human trafficking in her published novels- Silent Screams, Sinister Silence, and Blame. Mrs. Dimick is the leader of the DeLand Florida Writers Association group. The award-winning author is a Castleton State College graduate. She taught at Northern Adirondack Central School in New York, DeLand High School (Florida), and at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh.

The format for this series is conversational rather than a lecture, so participants are encouraged to join in with stories, comments, and questions.

Due to limited seating, reservations are suggested. Tickets are $5 and include complimentary coffee. For more information call the theater’s box office 386-252-3118.
