Emerson W. Baker
A Storm of Witchcraft: Salem Trials and the American Experience
Thursday, March 11 @ 8 pm
Emerson W. Baker investigates the key players in the Salem witchcraft crisis and illuminates why the tragedy unfolded as it did. He shows how the Puritan government’s attempts to suppress what had taken place only fueled the popular imagination and established the trials as a turning point from Puritan communalism to Yankee independence and reveals the ways their legacy remains with us.
