"You absolutely can tell a great story on the spot." This short film by Mark Cersosimo follows fiction writer C. D. Hermelin on his journey to becoming "The Roving Typist." After finding an old Royal Safari typewriter at a yard sale, Hermelin decided to set up shop in parks around New York City and type stories for strangers. Freebird Books serves as one of the backdrops in the film.
