Village Well Books & Coffee will host a conversation between Amanda Yates Garcia, the Oracle of Los Angeles, and author Thea Wirsching on Friday, October 22, 2021, 7 – 8:30 pm. There is a $10 admission charge (but attendees will receive a Village Well gift card, or apply the $10 to purchase of the book).

These two professional witches will share their thoughts on spirituality and trauma healing, in celebration of the new book and deck, “The American Renaissance Tarot.”

Known as the Oracle of Los Angeles, Amanda Yates Garcia is a hereditary witch, in the West Coast tradition of Reclaiming. Learning to read tarot from her mother at the age of 11, Yates Garcia has been practicing witchcraft and tarot for decades, re-enchanting the world with divination, trance healing work and public and private witchery. She’s lectured on witchcraft at universities and museums around LA, including UCLA and the Getty. Her memoir “Initiated: Memoir of a Witch,” has been translated in six languages, and she hosts the popular podcast “Between the Worlds.”

“The American Renaissance Tarot” author Thea Wirsching grew up with Tarot cards as toys. After accidentally signing up for a Tarot-intensive tour of Egypt, she began studying Tarot seriously, completing her PhD at UCLA with her dissertation Occult Americans: Invisible Culture and the Literary Imagination. Based in Long Beach, she’s been reading charts for local and long -distance clients for 15 years. Her Tarot deck was illustrated by Celeste Pille.
