Understanding The Power Of Rhetoric Through The Salem Witch Trials

Sep 23, 2016

In the early 1690s, Massachusetts got swept up in the madness of witch hunts, which culminated in the Salem witch trials and the execution of 20 people. On this edition of Up To Date, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Stacy Schiff talks about the 1692 tragedy that still fascinates us today, and how it compares to modern times.

Stacy Schiff will discuss her book The Witches: Salem 1692 and the story behind The Salem Witch Trials at the Kansas City Public Library's Plaza Branch at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, September 26. For more information and to RSVP, go to KCLibrary.org.
