Yesterday I got to hold a printed copy of Just This Banjo in my hands for the first time.
When I was a young boy wandering through the Chester County Library, I can remember looking at all of the books and daydreaming that I would someday add my name to the list of authors in the card catalog.
The Internet is awesome in that you can electronically access virtually every book ever written, but for the tenth time in my life, I can’t help but marvel at the difference between seeing your words on a screen compared to holding a bound volume of pages printed with ink. No matter how far we advance, there is still something powerful in the pages of a book.

About Just This Banjo:
Desperate for a way to communicate after losing his hearing, young Patrick Costello set his heart on becoming a musician. Ignoring the odds, empowered by his family and a karate grandmaster, Patrick won a banjo in a bet, salvaged a guitar from the trash and wandered into the city of brotherly love looking for a teacher. What happened next is an unbelievable true story of chasing improbable dreams, the kindness of strangers, the IRA, the Philadelphia Mummers, and unconditional love. Just This Banjo will make you laugh, cry and maybe inspire you to pick up an instrument yourself.
