November 15, 2018– Northern Kentucky University’s Friends of Steely Library will host the Chair of the Ohio Democratic Party David Pepper as part of its annual literary series on November 28.

Pepper will discuss his two political thrillers, “The People’s House” and “The Wingman, followed by a book signing and reception.

Pepper has over 15 years in Ohio politics, including terms on the Hamilton County Board of Commissioners and Cincinnati City Council. He gained national attention as an author from his first political thriller, “The People’s House, which predicted Russian interference in U.S. elections.
