A Woman of Valor Maggie Anton
Monday, January 12th at 7:00 pm

Author of Enchantress: A Novel of Rav Hisda’s Daughter


Maggie will discuss her book on fantastic tales of demons and the Evil Eye, magical incantations, and powerful attractions. The novel weaves together Talmudic lore, ancient Jewish magic, and a timeless love story set in fourth-century Babylonia.


The author of the acclaimed Rashi’s Daughters series and the award-winning Rav Hisda’s Daughter: Apprentice has conjured literary magic in the land where “abracadabra” originated. Based on five years of research and populated with characters from the Talmud, Enchantress brings a pivotal era of Jewish and Christian history to life from the perspective of a courageous and passionate woman.


Books will be available for sale. Please RSVP to Tara Farkash/ (818) 707-6017 or Ellen Southard/ (818) 707-9024.
