Tracey Rollin will read from her new book, Santa Muerte: History, Rituals and Magic of Our Lady of the Holy Death (Weiser Books, 2017). The book provides an in-depth analysis of the popular folk saint, Santa Muerte, as well as an introductory guide to practice.
Santa Muerte takes the form of a female Grim Reaper and is closely associated with the Day of Dead. She is believed to be a powerful and generous spirit who intervenes daily in the lives of her followers, responding quickly and graciously to even the humblest of requests. A universal saint who welcomes everyone with open arms, she is considered a protector of those live on the fringes of society.
Tracey Rollin is a practicing witch who has dedicated her life to the pursuit of creative consciousness and personal power. She has worked with Santa Muerte for over a decade, and is eager to spread knowledge and understanding of this powerful and helpful spirit. She is eager to meet new friends who are interested in Santa Muerte!
There will be a Q&A session and book signing after the reading.
