CENTRE FOR CONTEMPORARY JEWISH LITERATURE WELCOMES

THE BELOVED AUTHOR
ALICE HOFFMAN
Thursday, November 9, 2017 at 7:00 pm

The New York Times bestselling author of The Marriage of Opposites and The Dovekeepers, will discuss The Rules of Magic, her delightful prequel to the classic Practical Magic.

“The Owens sisters are back—not in their previous guise as elderly aunties casting spells in Hoffman’s occult romance Practical Magic (1995), but as fledgling witches in the New York City captured in Patti Smith’s memoir Just Kids. In that magical, mystical milieu, Franny and Bridget are joined by a new character: their foxy younger brother, Vincent, whose “unearthly” charm sends grown women in search of love potions. … No one’s more confident or entertaining than Hoffman at putting across characters willing to tempt fate for true love…[This book delivers] everything fans of a much-loved book could hope for in a prequel.”
—Kirkus Reviews

Ms. Hoffman will also answer our questions about her Jewish identity and the wonderful Jewish novels and stories she has written.
Books will be on sale, and Ms. Hoffman will be happy to sign your purchases.
