Magic realist novelist Alice Hoffman, author of Here on Earth, Practical Magic, the Ice Queen and many other novels, including some for young adults and children, will be speaking and signing at Vroman’s on Friday about her new novel, The Story Sisters. The book tells the tale of three sisters who become recluses after tragedy darkens their idyllic childhood, and their journey through adulthood to find salvation. The Story Sisters is earning very good reviews and was called out last weekend by the Los Angeles Times as one of its recommended summer reads.
