Reflections on women, magic and power.
By Pam Grossman
"Waking the Witch has all the makings of a feminist classic"- Ami McKay, author of The Witches of New York
An exploration of the world's fascination with witches from podcast host and witch Pam Grossman, who delves into why witches have intrigued us for centuries and why they're more relevant now than ever.
When you think of a witch, what do you picture? Pointy black hat, maybe a broomstick. But witches in various guises have been with us for millennia. In Waking the Witch, Pam Grossman explores the impact of the world's most magical icon. From the idea of femme fatale in league with the devil to the bewitching pop culture archetypes in Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Harry Potter; from the spooky ladies in fairy tales to the rise of contemporary witchcraft, witches reflect the power of women.
Part cultural analysis, part memoir, Waking the Witch traces the author's own journey on the path to witchcraft, and how this has helped her find self-empowerment and purpose. It celebrates witches past, present, and future, and reveals the critical role they have played, and will continue to play in the world as we know it.
