Book Talk "A Storm of Witchcraft: The Salem Trials and the American Experience"
Thursday, December 11, 6:30 p.m.

Focusing on the key players in the Salem witchcraft crisis - the accused witches and the people they allegedly bewitched, as well as the judges and government officials who prosecuted them - Emerson Baker illuminates why the tragedy unfolded as it did. He shows how the Puritan government's attempts to suppress what had taken place only fueled the popular imagination, and established the trials as a turning point from Puritan communalism to Yankee independence. He also sets the trials in the broader context of American history from the 1620s up through the present, and reveals the ways their legacy remains with us.
