- Writer's Voice - 20131026- Alice Hoffman

Alice HoffmanAlice Hoffman is one of the best-loved North American novelists of our time.  From her first novel "Property Of", written at age 21 while a student of Creative Writing at Stanford, to the upcoming "The Museum of Extraordinary Things: A Novel" set in early 1900's New York City, her work covers a lot of ground, literally and figuratively. She has published numerous adult novels, two books of short fiction, and 8 books of fiction for children and young adults.  Among her best-known works are "Practical Magic" (which became a movie starring Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman) and Oprah Book Club selection "Here on Earth," a modern version of themes drawn from Emily Brone's "Wuthering Heights."

Join us on Writers' Voices this week as we discuss Hoffman's most recent (and first non-fiction) book, "Survival Lessons," which reveals the essence of what she learned while fighting cancer.
