Thursday, May 12, 2016 at 6:00. The White Hart Speaker Series presents "The Capitalist" by author Peter Steiner, in collaboration with Oblong Books & Music and the Scoville Memorial Library. St. John Larrimer is a Wall Street investment banker, " the Capitalist", in the fifth novel of Steiner's Louis Morgon series. Thanks to the Larrimer Fund's spectacular returns, everyone wants a piece of the action. The only problem is that the whole operation is phony. And with the collapse of the markets and the demise of some of the biggest investment banks, Larrimer's scam is revealed, and he has to skedaddle to his luxurious Caribbean retreat. Peter Steiner is the author of "Le Crime", "The Terrorist", "L'Assassin", and "The Resistance", and is perhaps best known for his iconic cartoon "On the internet nobody knows you're a dog," the most reproduced cartoon "The New Yorker" has ever published. He lives in Connecticut and spends a good part of each year in rural France, where his books take place. MEETS AT THE WHITE HART INN, 15 Undermountain Rd., Salisbury, CT.
