freebrontosaurussmallerRenowned musician and author David Berkeley will be returning to the Midtown Scholar Bookstore to showcase his latest creative project: a compilation of ten short stories accompanied by a ten-song soundtrack. The novella, The Free Brontosaurus, depicts the intersecting lives of ten characters as they all pass through the same stretch of time in one fictional city. Intertwining with the written accounts of each character, David Berkeley has composed ten songs in what is being hailed as his best album to date, Cardboard Boat.

This is a free performance and completely open to the public and audiences of all ages!
For more information, feel free to call the bookstore at 717-236-1680.

See you at the Scholar!
