On Wednesday, October 14th at 4:00PM PDT Warwick's will host Alice Hoffman, in conversation with Jodi Picoult, as she discusses her new book, Magic Lessons: The Prequel to Practical Magic. Alice Hoffman is the author of more than thirty works of fiction, including The World That We Knew, The Rules of Magic, The Marriage of Opposites, Practical Magic, The Red Garden, The Museum of Extraordinary Things, and The Dovekeepers.

In an unforgettable novel that traces a centuries-old curse to its source, beloved author Alice Hoffman unveils the story of Maria Owens, accused of witchcraft in Salem, and matriarch of a line of the amazing Owens women and men featured in Practical Magic and The Rules of Magic.

Where does the story of the Owens bloodline begin? With Maria Owens, in the 1600s, when she's abandoned in a snowy field in rural England as a baby. Under the care of Hannah Owens, Maria learns about the "Unnamed Arts." Hannah recognizes that Maria has a gift and she teaches the girl all she knows. It is here that she learns her first important lesson: Always love someone who will love you back.

When Maria is abandoned by the man who has declared his love for her, she follows him to Salem, Massachusetts. Here she invokes the curse that will haunt her family. And it's here that she learns the rules of magic and the lesson that she will carry with her for the rest of her life. Love is the only thing that matters.

Magic Lessons is a celebration of life and love and a showcase of Alice Hoffman's masterful storytelling.

Jodi Picoult is the #1 bestselling author of twenty-five novels including My Sister's Keeper, Nineteen Minutes, The Storyteller, Leaving Time, Small Great Things, and the forthcoming The Book of Two Ways. Picoult lives in New Hampshire with her husband. They have three children.
