About Erynn Rowan Laurie

Erynn Rowan Laurie is a professional madwoman who has been fascinated by Gaelic and other Celtic cultures for over two decades. Her occult interests started when she was just a kid and she's been doing astrology and tarot since about the age of 12. Poet, writer, feminist, musician, interfaith activist and disabled veteran, Erynn is one of the founding voices of the Celtic Reconstructionist Pagan movement and the author of Ogam: Weaving Word Wisdom.

Born in Rhode Island and raised in Connecticut and western Massachusetts, Erynn currently resides in western Washington, loving the mountains, forests, and water beyond all logic or reason. She enjoys hiking, backpacking, and camping when she's able, and records the minutiae of her daily life and her spiritual and political ramblings on her blog.

Review by: Casey June Wolf on Sep. 22, 2014 :
Laurie has done an excellent job in Ogam: Weaving Word Wisdom. It is well-footnoted and carefully distinguishes her own ideas from tradition, offering modern innovations and explaining how they adhere to or differ from what is known of the beliefs and values of the ancient Celts. She is writing from a Celtic Reconstructionist NeoPagan perspective.

I had the print edition already when this ebook was given to me by a friend. The print book is well worn--I've read it cover to cover twice and consulted it many times. The ebook makes it easy to find particular items when I want a quick refresher.

Very highly recommended.

This is a refreshing take on the study of ogham, presented with an honesty, clarity, and academic integrity that is unfortunately rare in this field. It is an engaging and informative read, and I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in moving past Graves' treatment of ogham and learning more about the versatility and beauty of this intricate system.

This book came highly recommended, and I was not disappointed. The author's writing style is easy to read and informative. The scholarship is excellent, exactly what I want in a book about Ogham. This book is teaching me more about the uses of Ogham that I had expected. 5 stars.
