Signe PikeFaery Tale: One Woman's Search for Enchantment in a Modern World

Editor and writer Signe Pike reads from and discusses her book Faery Tale: One Woman’s Search for Enchantment in a Modern World. In search of something to believe in once more, Signe Pike left behind a career in Manhattan to undertake a magical journey-literally. In a sweeping tour through Mexico, England, Ireland, Scotland, and beyond, she takes readers to dark glens and abandoned forests, ancient sacred sites, and local pubs, seeking people who might still believe in the elusive beings we call faeries. As Pike attempts to connect with the spirit world-and reconnect with her sense of wonder and purpose-she comes to view both herself and the world around her in a profoundly new light. Captivating, full of heart, and unabashedly whimsical, Faery Tale is more than a memoir-it’s the story of rekindling that spark of belief that makes even the most skeptical among us feel like a child again.

($23.95) Perigee ISBN #978-0-399-53617-5. You can visit Signe Pike’s official web site as well.
