About the Event

About the authors:

Sarah Ansbacher was born in the UK and now lives in Israel. Her first book, a YA novel, was published when she was just eighteen. She has written seven books including Far From The Place We Called Home (a historical novel about the Kindertransport, written under her maiden name), Ayuni, and Passage From Aden – based on her experiences working at the Aden Jewish Heritage Museum in Tel Aviv. Her latest novel, Wave After Wave, is a historical novel based on a true story.

Israel-based Gila Green is a Canadian author of six novels and dozens of short works. Her latest thriller With A Good Eye features an ordinary heroine, Luna Levi, with extraordinary problems, a narcissistic mother who lies about everything, and a father who suffers from PTSD as an Israeli war veteran. The Levis jump from financial crisis to financial crisis until in one split-second, someone enters their lives and throws them into the biggest crisis of all. The novel explores the question: do any of us ever really leave home? It's for anyone who has ever had to live a double life to survive. Her next thriller, The Inheritance is forthcoming in 2025.

Sheryl Abbey was born in Bergenfield, New Jersey, to German-Jewish refugees in 1965. She studied music and architecture, and worked in historic preservation. In 1999, she moved to Israel, where learning Hebrew deepened her love of language, and inspired her to write. She published a poetry collection, Along the Edge of Absence, in 2022, and began a weekly blog, A Sense of Israel, after October 7. Her articles have appeared in Hadassah Magazine, The Jerusalem Post, and elsewhere. She lives in Jerusalem with her husband and three children.
