In the course of her storied career, bestselling author Alice Hoffman has explored the nooks and crannies of women’s search for identities — in modern times, as far back as the last days of Masada and in the supernatural world she blends seamlessly into reality. Thirty novels, three collections of short fiction, eight books for young adults, the New York Times bestseller list, Oprah’s Book Club, Hollywood screens . . . her success makes her one of America’s most distinguished writers.

This fall, Hoffman will release two books, a deft juxtaposition of her penchant for realism and her fondness for its magical variant. She will join us to discuss the paperback release of her New York Times bestseller The World That We Knew, her dazzling magical realistic paean to the power of grit, resistance and bottomless love in Berlin on the brink of the Holocaust, and Magic Lessons, the prequel to her Magic series, set during the Salem witchcraft trials, where the Owens bloodline and curse begins. 

Moderated by Judith Light, Emmy & Tony Award–winning actor, producer, and advocate.
