David W. Berner

Author David W. Bernerabout this book: 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 also called on to perform the song live at a storied venue for Americana music. So, he grabs his old guitar and the love of his life and 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.
