Why Go: Les Roberts, the author behind the Milan Jacovich series, will be speaking and signing copies of his newest book, Whiskey Island, at the library

Whiskey Island is Roberts' 16th book following Jacovich – a Stroh's-drinking, klobasa-eating private investigator from Cleveland who is a magnetic north for trouble.

In the new novel, Cleveland city councilman Bert Loftus -- a man with a rapacious appetite for good food, flashy suits, and Las Vegas call girls -- is made the target of media scrutiny and an FBI investigation that may end his career.

Convinced that someone is trying to kill him, Loftus turns to Milan and his partner Kevin O'Bannion -- a military veteran with a quick temper -- for help.

Pricing: Free to attend but the library asks that people register beforehand. They can do so on the library's website or by calling 440-255-8811.
