Love Spells

Happy Valentine’s Day! Last night I launched The Witch of Eye in the good company of writers, friends, and inspirations who each shared a love spell. I read my essay, “Medusa,” about the poetics of spells, which you can read online here. Thanks to Moon Palace Books for hosting! I thought it was a pretty magical reading and if you’d like to spend today celebrating all kinds of love — between friends, among families, as political action, divine and spiritual loves, as well as romance — you can watch a recording of the event here. You can also order a signed copy of The Witch of Eye from Moon Palace. (Leave a note in the “special instructions” box when you check out to tell me who to sign the book to.)
