The topic will be on WITCHCRAFT IN NEW ENGLAND – Our guest speaker Tad Baker, author of A Storm of Witchcraft: The Salem Trials and The American Experience, will focus on cases of witchcraft in the Piscataqua area, as well as connections between the region and the infamous Salem witch trials of 1692. His talk will include a bizarre case of witchcraft in which a stone-throwing devil assaulted Quaker George Walton and his tavern in present-day New Castle throughout the summer of 1682.
