anthology is a gift, both to Brigid and to the reader.

This anthology celebrates Brigid, an ancient and mysterious Celtic
spirit who ranks among today's most popular modern goddesses.
Venerated in many forms, not least as a saint and a goddess, Brigid
has traveled the globe alongside her devotees. Once a goddess with a
narrow territory, she is now an internationally beloved presence. While
acknowledging her origins, this book also explores Brigid from the
perspective of those outside her original Celtic homeland.
Packed full of art, poetry, stories, spells, rituals, recipes, and traditions,
Brigid's Light pays homage to the worldwide influence of Brigid's magic and
lore, especially among the descendants of immigrants to the Americas.
In compiling these individual works, editors Cairelle Crow and Laura Louella
have given voice to those traveling ancestors by showcasing a rich
and beautiful heritage manifested through embodiments of devotion by
their descendants, as well as others touched by Brigid.
Featuring contributions from Amy Blackthorn, H. Byron Ballard,
Courtney Weber, Laura Tempest Zakroff, Annwyn Avalon, Nancy Hendrickson,
Dawn Aurora Hunt, and many others.
