David Berner

Tuesday, February 1 at 7 p.m.  David Berner, Walks with Sam

A man, his dog, and a long walk can lead to unexpected discoveries. In the tradition of many literary walkers, David W. Berner sets out on foot hoping to reexamine his life, look back and forward, and most importantly, through the help of his young dog, Sam, try to find harmony in new beginnings and the uncertainties of the present.

David W. Berner’s memoirs reflect on our collective relationships and how those experiences link us to the world we share. David’s stories are about fathers and sons, the redemptive power of road trips, travel, music, and the sage-like connections we share with pets. He has been the Writer-in-Residence for the Jack Kerouac Project in Orlando, and the Writer-in-Residence at the Ernest Hemingway Birthplace Home in Oak Park, Illinois. Along with his writing credentials, David has had a distinguished career as a broadcast journalist, reporting for the CBS Radio Network, WBBM Radio Chicago, and public radio outlets throughout America.
