Author David E. Rohr will discuss his new book with Mike Curtin; chronicling key stories that come from the Buckeye State and the remarkable effect Ohio's development has had on the larger country.

Join author David E. Rohr as he discusses his book, The United States of OHIO: One American State and Its Impact on the Other Forty-Nine, with Mike Curtin, former Columbus Dispatch associate publisher and former member of the Ohio House of Representatives. Rohr’s book includes key stories from the Buckeye State and reveals the remarkable effect Ohio’s development has had on the American experience. Rohr’s book will be available for purchase and a signing will follow. This author visit is offered in partnership with The Columbus Bar Association and Gramercy Books Bexley.

About the Book

The United States of Ohio covers little-known facts about Ohio, such as how the state was the birthplace of both the National Football League and Major League Baseball and how it was Ohioans who led efforts toward racial integration in both sports. Readers will learn what makes the state a manufacturing and agricultural powerhouse—with both the largest tire company, Akron's Goodyear, and the largest consumer products company, Cincinnati's Proctor & Gamble, based there. The state grows, processes, and builds on a level that far outpaces the size of its population or expanse of its borders. And it is the birthplace of many prominent US figures—from Thomas Edison to John Glenn to Neil Armstrong. From sports to a century's worth of entertainment superstars to aviation and space exploration, Ohio's best have made for America's greatest stories—all captured here in a look at the Buckeye State and its impact on the other forty-nine. Born and raised in Ohio, David E. Rohr spent his working career in the state until the age of twenty-nine. Even though he's been a resident of other states since then, David remains a frequent Buckeye State visitor and an enthusiastic fan of Ohio sports teams.

About the library

Bexley Public Library was founded in 1924 and first housed in Bexley High School, now Montrose Elementary School. The present building opened in 1929 and was designed by architects O.C. Miller and R.R. Reeves who drew upon French and Italian architecture from the 17th century for the design.

The library is located at 2411 East Main Street, at the intersection of East Main Street and Cassady Avenue. Parking is available in our parking lot on Euclaire Avenue and in front of the library on Main Street. Main Street is a No Parking Tow Zone from 4:00-6:00 p.m. weekdays.
