Alice Hoffman returns to the festival with two new novels, "Faithful," newly out in hardcover, and "The Marriage of Opposites," now in paperback. Her novel "The Dovekeepers" was adapted as a miniseries by CBS and aired in March, 2015. One of America's most lauded and prolific authors, she has written more than thirty books, including novels, collections of short fiction, and screenplays, as well as fiction for children and young adults. Highlights include Oprah Book Club choice "Here on Earth," Practical Magic," subsequently made into a film starring Sandra Bullock; and "The Dovekeepers," praised by Toni Morrison as "beautiful, harrowing, a major contribution to twenty-first century literature." Her novels have received mention as notable books of the year by The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, The Los Angeles Times, Library Journal, and People Magazine. She lives in Massachusetts.
