Wizards and muggles alike— you can now order your copy of WE WERE WITCHES, the wicked new novel from Ariel Gore.

Caught in the crossfire of the culture wars and spurred on by nineties "family values" campaigns, teen mom Ariel is determined to better herself through education, taking on enormous debts to go to college.

Ariel wants more than mere survival. She wants to be a writer, but the overabundance of phallocentric narratives in college threatens to sink her dream. Amid trips to family court and messy encounters with her various exes, Ariel seeks guidance from a multitude of "spirit feminists," from Tillie Olsen to Audre Lorde to Gloria Anzaldúa.

Wryly riffing on feminist and literary tropes, We Were Witches documents the life and times of a demonized single mother as she figures out her magic.

To celebrate the launch of WE WERE WITCHES, we got the FP coven together to talk about our favorite witches in popular culture.
