The Salem Witch Museum online store is now open!
Traveling through cities and sites across Italy, France, Germany, Ireland, the United Kingdom, and the United States, author Kristen J. Sollée – a second-generation witch herself – explores the witch as a figure of female power and persecution. Witch Hunt isn’t only an exploration of the horrors of history but also uncovers how the witch has been rehabilitated. For witches are not just haunting figures of the past; the witch is also a liberatory icon and identity of the present. One of our favorite books!! (hardcover, 2020)
“Sollée takes the reader on an imaginative and historical quest across continents to follow the trail of witches . . . It made me want to pack my bags.” – Marilynne K. Roach, author of Six Women of Salem
“Kristen Sollée (author of Witches, Sluts, Feminists) explores the archetype of the witch in this entertaining mix of travel guide, journal, and ghost story collection. Highlights include an examination of the divination culture of Italy, including the tarot-dedicated Museo dei Tarocchi in Bologna, and of England’s occultism, including the Chelsea Physic Garden in London, where ‘the occult is inseparable from the landscape.'” – Publishers Weekly
