Fifty Shades of Talmud: Why and How I Wrote the Book

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

Maggie Anton will discuss how the research behind her "Rashi's Daughters" historical novels, which take place in 11th century France in the household of the great Talmud scholar, led her to start studying what our Sages had to say about sex. Surprised and impressed at their comparatively progressive views, she decided to share the best of what she'd learned in her newest book.
