Pagan Who’s who 10: Margot Adler

The Pagan Who’s who series contains information about current and recent notaries which have contributed to, or influenced the modern pagan scene.  Some names you may know already, some you may not, but all these people are dedicated and hard-working in their own particular specialised fields.  For pagan, spiritual, occult or faith matters who from the last generation influences and inspires you?

Margot Adler grew up in New York City, and works as a radio journalist and correspondent for National Public Radio.

She received her Masters from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in 1970, becoming a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University in 1982.  In 1979 she wrote  her first book, Drawing Down the Moon, which was revised in 2006.

The book was heralded on its release as it provided the first comprehensive look at nature based religions within the US.  Her second book, Heretics Heart a journey through spirit and revolution, was published in 1997.  She is currently a Wiccan priestess in the Gardnerian tradition, an elder in the Covenant of the Goddess, and she also participates in the Unitarian Universalist faith community.
