    In the vinyl era, David W. Berner played rock 'n' roll in a neighborhood garage band. Decades later at the age of 57 he enters a national songwriting contest and quite unexpectedly is named a finalist. But there's more. He's called on to perform the song live at a storied venue for Americana music. Grabbing his old guitar and the love of his life, David hits the road, hoping to live out a musical fantasy he thought had been buried long ago. October Song is a powerful examination of the passage of time, love, the power of music, and the power of dreams.

    A book of essays by award-winning author and journalist David W. Berner is the next best thing to storytelling around a bonfire. In There's a Hamster in the Dashboard, Berner shares stories of "a life in pets" - from a collie that herds Berner home when the author goes "streaking" through the neighborhood as a two-year-old, to a father crying in front of his son for the only time in his life while burying the family dog on the Fourth of July.

In 1968 this fighter bomber was shot down over North Vietnam, and his name was then engraved, like so many others classified as POW or MIA, on metal bracelets distributed to millions. Bracelets of Grace is the story of how America struggled with the war and tried to heal from the scars it left behind.
