Spring has come. Renewal, sunshine, flowers, and…witches and bonfires? We’re halfway to Halloween…it’s Walpurgis Night!

Walpurgis Night is a traditional holiday celebrated in northern Europe and Scandinavia. This ancient time for witches’ meetings marks the changing of the seasons and, like Halloween, occurs when the veil between the spirit world and ours is at its thinnest. 

Join Gregory Williams as he presents witches’ sabbaths, a Christian saint whose healing oil counters sorcery, the Celts’ Beltane, Goethe and Mendelssohn, Faust and Mephistopheles, and more!

We’ll end the night by the fire outside the library as we scan the skies for witches!
