David Pepper to talk at Main Library

Cincinnati lawyer and author David Pepper is discussing and signing his debut fiction novel The People’s House, at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 20, in the Reading Garden Lounge at the Main Library.

In The People’s House, political reporter Jack Sharpe investigates an odd election result in the Ohio Congressional district he covers. Sharpe stumbles across voting irregularities that spur him to dig deeper. The story takes him far beyond his corner of Ohio as he discovers an international plot one that strikes at the heart of American democracy. His reporting leads to a showdown with a philandering congressman and presidential contender, and an eccentric but deadly Russian mogul.

Books are available for purchase from the author. Pepper’s appearance is part of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County’s author series. For details about other upcoming author visits, go to CincinnatiLibrary.org/authors.
