Review: The Magic of Marie Laveau


For some, their first introduction to Marie Laveau was via American Horror Story: Coven - her vamped-up character played by the wonderful Angela Bassett.

But there was a lot more to this incredible woman than her on-screen portrayal showed. She was extremely committed to the people of her community; she helped the sick and the poor, she visited people in prison, and she attended court cases to help others, amongst many other acts of charitable kindness.

The Magic of Marie Laveau: Embracing the Spiritual Legacy of the Voodoo Queen of New Orleans is an amazing book by Denise Alvarado, and only a few pages in I was ready to pack my bag for New Orleans, to go pay my respects to this amazing woman.

Head over to the Witch With Me Blog (www.witchwithme.com) to read my @witch.with.books review of this brilliant book, this is definitely one you don’t want to miss.
