In celebration of her new novel, The Enchantress, the Spertus Shop welcomes Maggie Anton. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet the celebrated author of the Rashi’s Daughters and Rav Hisda’s Daughters series. All of Ms. Anton’s books will be available for sale and signing.
Maggie Anton is an award-winning and bestselling author of historical fiction. A native of Los Angeles, she was raised in a secular household with little knowledge of her Jewish religion. Her interest peaked as an adult, and she now has studied Talmud and Biblical women’s history for more than twenty years. Intrigued that the great Talmudic scholar Rashi had no sons, only daughters, Anton researched his family and decided to write novels about them. Thus the acclaimed Rashi's Daughters trilogy was born. Anton has lectured through North America and Israel about the history behind her novels. Her new novel, The Enchantress: A Novel of Rav Hisda’s Daughter, comes out in paperback on September 18.
