Book signing by ONU professor Monday at the public library

By Barbara Lockard
Scott Douglas Gerber, law professor at Ohio Northern University, will discuss his latest novel, “The Art of The Law,” at 7 p.m., Monday, Feb. 24, at the Ada Public Library.

Topic of the presentation will be, “Why a law professor writes fiction.”  The program is free and open to the public.

While in law school, Gerber read some novels by Attorney John Grisham (legal mysteries).  He liked the genre and thought he’d give novel writing a try.

“I feel I have a different perspective as a law professor than a trial lawyer might have,” said Gerber.
