Alice Hoffman Discussing "The Dovekeepers"

I'm currently reading Alice Hoffman's newest novel, The Dovekeepers: A Novel.  Unlike most of the books on my summer list, this is not a children's book, but I wanted to share this video of the author discussing what inspired her to write this work.  This is actually the video I watched a few months back which got me interested in reading the book and about a week ago it finally came to be my turn on the library's requests!  Hope some of you may pick up this book as well or at least may be interested in this amazing history that Alice Hoffman discusses in this video and illuminates in her novel.

  1. Wow! I feel drained. Loved this book. Alice Hoffman has such magic in her words. This story is powerful, and it awakened a curiosity about this period of history . While reading, I would stop to research something I read about. I am so glad I read this book.
