The Art of Telling a Story

October 11, 2011

Hour 1: What is required to retell ancient history in fictional form? We’ll spend this hour with writer Alice Hoffman [1], whose new book “The Dovekeepers” (Scribner, 2011) is based on the true events of the Roman siege of Masada. She’ll appear at Arts & Letters Live [2] at the Dallas Museum of Art this evening.
