Tamra Lucid and Amy Hale In Conversation

This special edition of the Last Tuesday Society will be a rare “in conversation” session between Amy Hale and her guest, the pioneering journalist, writer, filmmaker and riot grrrl Tamra Lucid. We will talk about Tamra’s journeys through the esoteric community of Los Angeles, and her intimate and delightful book Making the Ordinary Extraordinary about her friendship with occult luminary Manly P. Hall and the LA metaphysical milieu. We will also discuss her exciting new project with Ronnie Pontiac, an updated translation of the Orphic hymns for the contemporary magician.
