Matt Santry
It’s been four years since Matt Santry’s last release, so with news of this sometimes-brooding, sometimes-rocking singer/songwriter’s forthcoming CD, Tin Ace City, expectations are high for another round of evocative lyrics and refined hooks. Over the past six months, the Ardmore artist has raised more than $7,000 via Feed the Muse (feedthemuse.net/mattsantry) to help fund the project. Catch Santry at the Delaware County Summer Festival in Media’s Rose Tree Park on Aug. 6. Visit myspace.com/mattsantry.

The Killing of Mindi Quintana
Jeffrey A. Cohen
(Welcome Rain Publishers, 288 pages)

A brutal, senseless celebrity murder fuels this haunting debut novel from Philadelphia attorney/entrepreneur Jeffrey A. Cohen. Impassioned, insightful and, at times, angry, The Killing of Mindi Quintana stands out for the depth of its characters and its fresh twist on the all-too-familiar struggle between right and wrong. The perfect thought-provoking beach read. For upcoming book signings in the area, visit jeffreyacohenbooks.com.
