DovekeepersWatch the book trailer here. Join us this Tuesday, October 18 at 7:30 PM to meet Alice Hoffman and talk with her about her research for, and writing of, the story of four women in 70 CE – their lives and passions, as relevant now as in ancient times – before their arrival at Masada, and during their days at Masada – and the final Roman siege in which 900 rebels and their families perished…except for two women and five children. It’s Hoffman at her absolute best and not to be missed.
