How I Went from a Clinical Chemist to a Historical Novelist

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Maggie Anton, who grew up in a secular socialist household and knew little of her Jewish religion, never imagined she would write award-winning historical novels about learned Jewish heroines. She will talk about how, after over 30 years as a clinical chemist, she started studying Talmud and became so fascinated with Rashi's daughters that she decided to write about them. Which led her to embark on to an entirely new career.
