Inspired by our last presentation on Dion Fortune, we are going to read her novel, "The Sea Priestess" which Dion considered her greatest work.
The Sea Priestess is the highly acclaimed novel in which Dion Fortune introduces her most powerful fictional character, Vivien Le Fay Morgan- a practicing initiate of the Hermetic Path. Vivien has the ability to transform herself into magical images, and here she becomes Morgan Le Fay, sea priestess of Atlantis and foster daughter to Merlin! Desperately in love with Vivien, Wilfred Maxwell works by her side at an isolated seaside retreat, investigating these occult mysteries. They soon find themselves inextricably drawn to an ancient cult through which they learn the esoteric significance of the magnetic ebb and flow of the moontides.
There are both new and used copies of "The Sea Priestess" by Dion Fortune on amazon.com and other booksellers. There are 2 copies of it at the New York Public library, Mid-Manhattan branch in Fiction on the Second Floor. And one copy at the New York Public library, at the 58th Street branch.
Please read the book and be prepared to discuss it. (Ok, if you can't get through the whole book, you can still attend; but try to read it.)
You are welcome to bring healthy snacks to share, though it's not required.
I ask 2-4 dollars donation to help pay for the meetup fee. Whatever you can afford.
