Mind the broomstick, beware the hex: the witches are coming.

Dunked, stoned, burned at the stake – historically speaking, an accusation of witchcraft was never good news, especially if you’re a woman. Today, in the wake of #MeToo and the ever-growing momentum towards gender equality, words like ‘wiccan’ and ‘coven’ are taking on powerful new positive connotations. Witchery is bubbling up in the pop culture cauldron once more. Here are some books that celebrate the magical magnetism of witches.
