Alexis Clark signs and discusses “Enemies In Love”

Left Bank Books and Maryville Talks Books welcome journalist and former Town & Country editor Alexis Clark, who will sign and discuss her new book, “Enemies in Love: A German POW, a Black Nurse, and an Unlikely Romance”!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of “Enemies in Love” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

Twenty-five years before Loving v. Virginia, an African American nurse named Elinor Powell and a soldier in Hitler’s army, Frederick Albert, fell madly in love against all odds in Jim-Crow Arizona. Their story is revealed in full for the first time in “Enemies in Love.” Drawing on years of first-hand interviews with relatives and friends of Elinor and Frederick, journalist and former “Town & Country” editor Alexis Clark weaves a spellbinding American war story illuminating not just a remarkable love story, but the unmined history of black Army nurses and German soldiers on U.S. soil during World War II.
