WHAT: Becoming Dangerous: The Power Summoning Book Launch
WHEN: 7 June 2018 at 7 pm
WHERE: Marlin's Wynd, Edinburgh
BECOMING DANGEROUS is a nonfiction book of deeply personal essays by marginalised people using the intersection of feminism, witchcraft, and resistance to summon power and become fearsome in a world that would prefer them afraid. With contributions from twenty-one witchy femmes, queer conjurers, and magical rebels, BECOMING DANGEROUS is a book of intelligent and challenging essays that will resonate with anyone who’s ever looked for answers outside the typical places. And on the 7th of June, we're going to celebrate the book at a power summoning book launch in Edinburgh!
Books! Dancing! Rituals! Tarot readings! Drinking! OWLS! Resistance! A very powerful aesthetic!
Where better to hold a book launch for a book about the ritual summoning of power than in the vaults under South Bridge in Edinburgh: a place that, since 1788, has seen legitimate businesses, brothels, pubs, robbers, body snatchers, and a witches coven pass under its arches.
Come join us for a night of ritualistic book magic. Bring your coven. Dress in your most powerful outfits, whatever that means to you. Dance all night. Who cares if it's a Thursday? You have rituals to perform.
If you can't go, that's okay! You don't have to tell us! All you have to do is invite a friend who can. ;)
