Symsbury Witches Author Talk on October 27
Author and professor emerita of English at Manchester Community College, Kaarina LaBella, will talk about her new book, The Symsbury Witches, a story based on legend and local history. She will compare the Connecticut witch trials and those held in Salem and other New England states and will also give a timeline of how the Simsbury witches of legend fit into the Connecticut timeline. Professor LaBella will give a brief reading of the tale, told in the oral tradition since the 1600s. Learn about the men mentioned in the tale, all of whom existed in history, and her year-long search for the women.
The free event will be held in the Library’s Fireside Commons on October 27 at 12:30 p.m. and is open to the public. Refreshments will be served and books will be available for purchase. Download an event flyer.
