Witches, Pop Culture, and the Past
Thursday, October 23, 7pm
Gorham Public Library
"Hang her!" cries the raucus spectator. In 1692, nineteen people were executed in Salem and hundreds improsioned during a witch hunt we still discuss today. Robin DeRosa of Plymouth State University explains that when Salem tells its witch stories, history, tourism, and performance collide, and "truth," both moral and macabre, vies with spooky thrills for its authentic place in history.
This event is made possible by a generous grant by the New Hampshire Humanities Council and co-sponsored by the Gorham Senior & Adult Program.
