MAggie AntonMaggie Anton's Bio: Maggie is an award-winning author of both fiction and nonfiction and a Talmud scholar with a deep understanding of Jewish women’s history.

She also won the Gold Ben Franklin Award in the religion category for Fifty Shades of Talmud: What the First Rabbis Had to Say about You-Know What, a lighthearted in-depth tour of sexuality within the Talmud. Her latest work is The Choice: A Novel of Love, Faith and the Talmud, a wholly transformative novel that takes characters inspired by Chaim Potok and ages them into young adults in 1950s Brooklyn. Ms. Anton lives in Los Angeles, California.
