Fall Author Series
Tuesday, November 13 | 7:00 pm - 8:45 pm
FALL in Love with Books” is the catchy name for the author series organized by the Friends of the Bronxville Public Library (FOBPL) from October 4 to November 13 in the Yeager Room. Most of the author talks listed below will take place at 7:00 p.m and will be followed by a reception and a book sale and signing. “The Friends board is excited to bring such a terrific roster of authors to our Library this fall,” said Margaret Mager, president of FOBPL. “The books they have written span the gamut from fiction to non-fiction, new books and past publications, science to history to romance.
Alexis Clark, author of “Enemies in Love: A German POW, a Black Nurse and an Unlikely Romance.” Based on a New York Times story by Clark that drew national attention, “Enemies in Love” paints a true and deeply moving narrative of forbidden love during World War II and a shocking, hidden history of race on the home front: Elinor Powell was an African American nurse in the U.S. military during World War II; Frederick Albert was a soldier in Hitler’s army, captured by the Allies and shipped to a prisoner-of-war camp in the Arizona desert.
