I’m taking a moment to reflect on some of the books that have inspired me. This collection is eclectic: including historical accounts of the Salem Witch Trials along with fictional depictions and even some fanciful storytelling featuring modern-day witches who reflect the role strong women have always played in this continuing narrative. Like myself, many of the writers listed here were inspired by ancestral ties to Salem’s executions. With blame and persecution of those we consider “other” as alive as ever in the world, Salem’s cautionary tale remains relevant if only to keep history from repeating.
