In their first book, Missing Witches: Recovering True Histories of Feminist Magic, co-authors Risa Dickens and Amy Torok of the Missing Witches Podcast offer a guide to invocations, rituals, and histories at the intersection of magic and feminism, as informed by history’s witches — and the sociopolitical culture that gave rise to them.
“Here … we meet the Witch friends we always wanted and find the coven we always wish we had.”—Amanda Yates Garcia, author of Initiated
From the publisher: When you start looking for witches, you find them everywhere. As seekers and practitioners reclaim and restore magic to its rightful place among powerful forces for social, personal, and political transformation, more people than ever are claiming the identity of “Witch.” But our knowledge of witchcraft and magic has been marred by erasure, sensationalism, and sterilization, the true stories of history’s witches left untold.
“I have been wishing for a book such as this for ages, and I’m so grateful that Risa Dickens and Amy Torok are the ones to have conjured it. Through their signature brew of scholarship, sensitivity, and bright spirit, these bewitching writers have crafted a tome that honors many brave and brilliant feminine magic-makers. I’m in awe of the trailblazing Witches who are in Missing Witches—as I am of the ones who wrote it.”
—Pam Grossman, Waking the Witch and The Witch Wave podcast
“Amy and Risa are the Witches I was missing! Join them and discover powerfully creative yet complicated Witches, whose storied tales were almost lost to time.”—Jinkx Monsoon, Queen of all Queens
