SCAD’s Ivy Hall Writers Series presents author Alice Hoffman, whose novel — the critically acclaimed best-seller “The Dovekeepers”  — was described by Toni Morrison as “a major contribution to 21st-century literature.” In this book, Hoffman delves into ancient history to create a stunning work of historical fiction.

Now with her new novel, “The Museum of Extraordinary Things,” Hoffman looks to the year 1911 in New York City when two fires, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire and the Dreamland Fire, transformed the city and the life of every New Yorker.

Admission is $10 at the door for the general public and free to all SCAD students, faculty and staff with valid SCAD ID.

A book sale and signing will follow.
