We’ve had a couple requests lately for books on Wicca and witchcraft, so I ordered two new books on the subject for the teen area. Stop by the information desk and let me know if you’re interested in one of them!
Solitary Witch: The Ultimate Book of Shadows for the New Generation
by Silver RavenWolf
Call number: Y.A. 133.43 RAV.
This is a hefty book, weighing in at 608 pages! It is a compendium of ancient and modern Wiccan ideas and teachings, including a magickal cookbook, encyclopedia, dictionary, and grimoire. It relates specifically to today’s young adults and their concerns, yet is grounded in the magickal work of centuries past. Information is arranged alphabetically and divided into five distinct categories: (1) Shadows of Religion and Mystery, (2) Shadows of Objects, (3) Shadows of Expertise and Proficiency, (4) Shadows of Magick and Enchantment, and (5) Shadows of Daily Life. It is organized so readers can skip over the parts they already know, or read each section in alphabetical order.
Elements of Witchcraft: Natural Magick for Teens
by Ellen Dugan
Call number: Y.A. 133.4 DUG.
Study and work with the four elements of earth, air, fire, and water and learn many different forms of real magick, including crystal, herb, stone, color, and candle magick. It might not be as flashy as the movies make it seem, but real Witches work magick every day-the magick of the natural world, the magick of the Craft, and especially the magick of the heart and mind.
