Author Maya Arad, whose new book All about Abigail was recently published, holds a PhD in linguistics and is currently serving as writer in residence at Stanford University’s Taube Center for Jewish Studies. Each of these acclaimed authors has a unique voice. Tsabari writes her books in English, while Arad writes in Hebrew.
