New York Times bestselling author Alice Hoffman presents her soon to be released, newest novel The Museum of Extraordinary Things. Set in the volatile early 20th century in New York, this mesmorizing work tells the story of young love between two vastly different souls. This is a wonderful opportunity to be among the first to hear from this notable author just weeks after the release of this much anticipated new work.
Hoffman’s acclaimed body of work has been published in more than 20 translations and more than 100 foreign editions, and includes Practical Magic, made into a movie starring Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman; and Here on Earth, an Oprah Book Club selection.
Hoffman is currently a visiting
research scholar at the Women's Studies
Praise for Alice Hoffman's The Museum of Extraordinary Things:
"Beautiful, harrowing, a major contribution to twenty-first century literature." - Toni Morrison
"As always, Alice Hoffman amazes me with her ability to use words the way other master artists use watercolors, paiREGISTnting the dreamlike world of a girl who grows up in a hall of wonders only to learn that something as ordinary as love is the greatest marvel of all. Many novels these days are called 'stunning' but this one truly IS: part love story, part mystery, part history, and all beauty." - Jodi Picoult
available for purchase and signing at all events.
