Please join author/artist Christine Sloan Stoddard in celebrating her new book, Belladonna Magic: Spells In The Form of Poetry and Photography. Stoddard will be reading and presenting artwork along with other NYC poets and creators.
Belladonna Magic is an invitation and an offering. Step out of your nest and out of your cave. Come to the gully. Stand in that halo of light beneath the 300-year-old sycamore and close your eyes. Can you feel the sun warm your eyelids? Good. Then you've found the perfect spot. Let us recite the words together. All the spells and stories we need today are in this book. They even have photographs to go with them.
