Pete Rose is probably Cincinnati’s best known export, which is a blessing and a curse — the all-time MLB hit king is also the only player to never appear on the Baseball Hall of Fame’s ballot, the result of Rose’s banishment from baseball 25 years ago. Sports Illustrated assistant managing editor Kostya Kennedy’s new book, Pete Rose: An American Dilemma, delves anew into the singular life of our most (in)famous son, using deep research, incisive reporting and descriptive prose to give us a complicated portrait of the baseball icon not yet seen.

Kennedy will discuss his book at separate appearances at Joseph-Beth in Norwood and The Booksellers downtown. 

5 p.m. Sunday. Free. Joseph-Beth Booksellers, Rookwood Commons, 2692 Madison Road, Norwood, josephbeth.com. Noon Monday. Free. The Booksellers at Fountain Square, 505 Vine St., Downtown, booksellersonfountainsquare.com.
