The harrowing story of the hanging of witches in Colonial New England continues to haunt our present-day imagination. The trials and executions of witches in Connecticut predated the more famous Salem witch panic by over 40 years. Hear the stories of some of the women and men accused, tried, and executed as witches and learn how Connecticut successfully controlled the spread of witch accusations long before Salem erupted in panic and violence. Registration begins August 15th.
Program will be held at Coe Park Memorial Civic Center. Co-sponsored by Torrington Parks and Recreation! The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. To register, call the library at 860-4896684 or visit our website.
