6:30 pm Book signing "Face of the Enemy"

Come celebrate the Louisville launch of FACE OF THE ENEMY, the first novel in the NEW YORK IN WARTIME mystery series co-authored by Beverle Graves Myers and Joanne Dobson.

These seasoned mystery authors have written a compelling historical novel set in New York City during the early, tumultuous weeks of World War II. Louise Hunter, a nurse from Louisville transplanted to the Big City, must confront the era’s rampant racial paranoia when artist Masako Fumi Oakley, wife of her patient, is detained by the FBI on Ellis Island immediately after the Pearl Harbor attacks. Masako’s situation becomes more dire when a ham-fisted G-Man accuses her of an art dealer’s murder. Determined to prevent wartime passions from leading to an innocent woman’s conviction, Louise turns for help to Cabby Ward, an ambitious New York Times reporter, and also to a sympathetic homicide detective, Lt. Michael McKenna.

The authors will discuss their surprising discoveries about women’s wartime roles (it wasn’t all Rosie the Riveter for New York gals!), and talk about their inspiration for the collaboration between a Louisvillian and a New Yorker. Books will be on hand for purchase and signing. Admission is free.
