Come learn about the surprising prevalence of ancient Jewish magic in Talmudic times and how some of that sorcery is still with us today.

Enchantress focuses on the rabbis and sorceresses who populate the Talmud, and the surprising importance of Jewish magic in 4th-century Babylonia. The first volume, Apprentice, was a National Jewish Book Award finalist. A Los Angeles native, Maggie worked for 33 years as a clinical chemist for Kaiser Permanente before becoming an author.
