Before Salem: Witch
Before Salem: Witch Hunting in the Connecticut River Valley 1647-1663
East Hampton Public Library

Tuesday, Oct. 22, 6:30 PM
Registration required, begins Sep 1.
Join us for a very special talk from author Richard S. Ross III. Decades before the Salem Witch trials, 11 people were hanged as witches in the Connecticut River Valley. We’ll examine the outbreak of witch hysteria in the Valley, focusing on accusations of demonic possession, apotropaic magic and the role of the clergy. This is a can’t miss event from the Friends of the East Hampton Public Library. Space is limited, reserve your seat. 
Sponsored by Friends of the East Hampton Public Library and the East Hampton Public Library.
