Join us for a virtual panel discussion with three notable Salem witch trials authors. Historian and archivist Richard Trask, descendant of Mary Easty, Rebecca Nurse, and John Proctor, historical fiction author Kathleen Kent, descendant of Martha Carrier, and historian Mary Beth Norton, descendant of Mary Bradbury and Susanna Martin, will discuss how they discovered their ancestry and how it has informed their work. Ticket information coming soon.
