Mairi Kidd introduces her new book which lends a voice to the many Scottish women called “witches” down the years. Weaving together fact and fiction, history and mythology, Kidd lets the healers, seers and enchantresses speak up for themselves. The result combines folklore and femininity and offers fresh insights into contemporary problems ranging from gender politics and reproductive rights to the Covid 19 pandemic.
