Alice Hoffman


We've had many impressive guests on HashHags but few who could inspire a whole new version of the Passover song, "Dayenu" -- which, for anyone who didn't go to Hebrew School or has never been to a 5-hour Seder, means: "It would have been enough for us."

Alice Hoffman has published 21 novels, 3 books of short fiction, and 8 books for children and young adults. 

Dayenu!

Here on Earth was an Oprah Book Club Choice, Practical Magic was made into a movie starring Sandra Bullock, and the film version of her teen novel, Aquamarine, starred Emma Roberts.

Dayenu!

The advance of Local Girls was donated to help create the Hoffman Breast Center at Mt. Auburn Hospital in Cambridge, MA.

Dayenu!

And her latest novel NYTs bestselling novel, The Dovekeepers, was described by Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison as "a major contribution to 21st century literature." 

Dayenu!

We hope you'll enjoy our discussion with Alice as much as we did.
