Stacy Schiff on the Witches of Salem: LA Public Library ALOUD series

The panic began in 1692, when a minister’s daughter began to scream and convulse. It ended less than a year later, but not before 19 men and women had been hanged.  I’ll be in conversation with the Stacy Schiff, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Véra, about the wild story of the Salem Witch Trials Her new book is The Witches.
