Watch history come alive with these fascinating dramatizations of the true stories of the Salem Witch Hysteria.
The setting is Salem, Massachusetts in 1692, a year in which, of the approximate 168 men and women accused of practicing witchcraft, 20 were executed.
Let’s see how things go in 2018 when the audience members become the jury in the trial of Susannah Martin. They will have the opportunity to question the defendant and form their own opinion as to her guilt or innocence. The cast will open up again to the audience after the performance for a lively discussion.

8:00 PM Book Talk: Blue Collars / Meeting Room
Fall River Public Library welcomes local author Catherine McLaughlin, who will share stories from her new book Blue Collars, published by Spinner Publications. Blue Collars tells the story of an Irish-American family in a typical working-class neighborhood in New Bedford from the 1950s through the 1970s. McLaughlin, a former English professor at at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and Framingham State University, will answer questions about her book. Copies will be available for purchase and signing.
“McLaughlin’s work never fails to leave the reader enthralled. Blue Collars is no exception. In this book, we journey the streets, backyards, and factories of New Bedford in the late 1950s throughout the fevered sixties as seen by McLaughlin’s young heroine, Finn. We watch hopefully as Finn overcomes one issue, dilemma after another — problems too heavy for her slender shoulders to bear, and we, the rapt reader, look for solutions alongside her.” — Patricia Gomes, Poet Laureate, City of New Bedford, Massachusetts
This free event is sponsored by the Friends of the Fall River Public Library.
