“The power of words had sustained him throughout the hell of the Guild. Wizards and witches used words as if they were tools to get things done, but the Fool reckoned that words were things in their own right. “Words can change the world”, he said.”
Book 69 (nice!) in my #2021ReadingChallenge is book 6 in the #Discworld series. Wyrd Sisters is the first time we see Nanny Ogg, Granny Weatherwax and Magrat Garlick all together, and it’s a suitably Shakespearean tale of three witches, a murdered king, incessant washing of hands, and a play within a play. Not only is it laugh-out-loud funny, but it provides some powerful reflections on the nature of history and memory, and the sheer magic of words and language. A gem of a book from a master storyteller.

About the Author

NSWPRC Officer, Teacher Librarian, English teacher and social media advocate. I've been teaching in Western Sydney for my entire teaching career, and love my job more than I love Neil Gaiman. (That's a lot, in case you're wondering!) I stalk authors (but always politely), fangirl over books, and drink coffee. And one of my guilty prides about my children is that they all have favourite authors. All opinions are my own.
