The Psychedelic Explorers Guide by James Fadiman: the OG microdosing handbook, by a Stanford researcher and “psychedelic pioneer.”

Witch Light by Susan Fletcher: a historical novel told from the perspective of Corrag, a woman accused of witchcraft, who witnessed the bloody Massacre of Glencoe (NERD ALERT: this Scottish tragedy was said to have inspired George R. R. Martin to write “The Red Wedding” scene from Game of Thrones)

Women Who Run With The Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes: a collection of myths and folk tales that tell stories of female power and wisdom, a fave of cool mom Jeannelle Olson

The Legend Of Krishna by Nigel Frith:  an ancient story, newly (well, 1970’s) told
