New York Times bestselling author Katherine Howe has written a suspenseful new book that weaves mysterious illnesses at a contemporary elite Massachusetts girls’ school with the Salem Witch Trials of 1706. Her book incorporates the research from Arthur Miller’s play, “The Crucible” and medical drama. While mass illnesses resembling demonic possessions may seem far-fetched, this novel is based upon a true story in upstate New York in 2012. Could witchcraft create the sicknesses and lead to a media frenzy that exacerbates the tensions? Listen to the author talk about her marvelously-written story. Your interest will be piqued.
