Just to remind you that the book club will be held this Thursday 21st October.
Here are some questions you might like to think about for the meeting:
- Identify and discuss some of the factors that contributed to the witch hysteria in seventeenth-century New England
- Discuss Mercy Williams' role in the tragedy that befalls the Carrier family. What motivates Mercy?
- Why do you think the magistrates, and the wider community of Salem so easily believed in and relied on "spectral evidence"?
- Are there any notable or notorious ancestors in your family tree? Did this book make you want to look into your ancestry?
