BY Emily Rems in Music

Taking a book club and turning it into an all-girl, reading-inspired, song-fest? What will they think of next?

I Love Witches

BY Emily Rems in General

According to this story on CNN.com today , a group in London is 'petitioning the British government for a posthumous pardon for the hundreds of people executed for witchcraft between the 16th and 18th centuries.'
