Margot Adler dies
Journalist, NPR commentator, and author Margot Adler, best known for her pivotal book on Neopaganism, Drawing Down the Moon, passed away on 28 July at the age of 68. Though she was Wiccan and not Heathen, for many the second edition of her most famous work, in which she included a chapter on Asatru and Odinism, was their first exposure to Northern Tradition. Her obituary in the New York Times may be read here. An elegiac piece by Jason Pitzl-Waters appears at the Wild Hunt.
