Pagan Community Notes: Circle Magazine, PantheaCon, Tempest Smith Foundation, and More!

Pagan Community Notes is a series focused on news originating from within the Pagan community. Reinforcing the idea that what happens to and within our organizations, groups, and events is news, and news-worthy. My hope is that more individuals, especially those working within Pagan organizations, get into the habit of sharing their news with the world. So let’s get started! The latest issue of Circle Magazine (#115) is now at the printers, and available for order at the Circle Sanctuary store.

Quick Notes: Library Books, Moore on Spare, and O’Donnell Dominates

A few quick news notes to start off the week. The Case of the Disappearing Library Books: The Lewiston Sun Journal in Maine tackles an oldie but goody, which books “have legs” in the local public library, that is, which books are most often stolen. “It’s like you know as soon as you order them; it’s almost like you have a betting pool. Anything to do with Wicca, witchcraft, supernatural, things like that. Especially the spells.” At her library, those books seem to bolt before they’re checked out, taken directly off the shelves.
