Author and scholar Denise Alvarado takes us on a magical tour of New Orleans. A mysterious spiritual underbelly hides in plain sight in this city, and Denise shows us where it is and who the characters are. She recounts where these figures came from and explains how their spirits persist and manifest today.

Witch Queens, Voodoo Spirits, and Hoodoo Saints shines a light on such notable spirits and folk saints as Papa Legba, Annie Christmas, Black Hawk, African American culture hero Jean St. Malo, St. Expedite, plague saint Roch, and, of course, the mother and father of New Orleans Voudou, Marie Laveau and Doctor John Montenée. Alvarado uncovers an enchanted secret history and reveals details even locals may not know.

“Alvarado blends New Orleans’s indigenous queens, spirits, and saints into a holy trinity that is part myth, part tall tale, and part historical accuracy as only a daughter of the crescent city could. This book is a must-have for any serious lover, devotee, or student of New Orleans from an African-centered perspective.” - Mawiyah Kai El-Jamah Bomani, award-winning playwright of Spring Chickens.

“New Orleans is legendary, complex, and delicious, and | suspect few people know it better than Denise Alvarado. Witch Queens, Voodoo Spirits, and Hoodoo Saints is her love story to the practices in this great American city.” - H. Byron Ballard, author of Seasons of a Magical Life.

Denise Alvarado was born and raised in the rich Creole culture of New Orleans and has studied indigenous of healing traditions for more than four decades. She is a rootworker in the Louisiana folk magic tradition, a spiritual artist, and a teacher of Southern conjure at Crossroads University. Alvarado is the author of numerous books about Southern folk traditions, including The Conjurers Guide to St. Expedite, The Voodoo Hoodoo Spellbook, The Magic of Marie Laveau, and The Voodoo Doll Spellbook. Her artwork has been featured on several television shows
