Transcript

Halloween is the day to celebrate witches.

A new book, "Literary Witches: A Celebration of Magical Women Writers," helps readers celebrate witches throughout the year.

Taisia Kitaiskaia, the author of "Literary Witches," said a witch is a figure of radical creativity, originality and empowerment.

The book provides a "surreal vignette," brief biography and suggested reading for each of the 30 female authors included.

Kitaiskaia will join Midday Edition on Tuesday to discuss her inspiration for the book.
