“The Daughters of Temperance Hobbs” with Katherine How
September 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$5.00
Fact: New York Times bestselling author Katherine Howe is descended from three women who were tried for witchcraft in Salem.
Fiction: Her latest work, The Daughters of Temperance Hobbs, is a bewitching story of a woman with a similar history.
Meet Connie Goodwin. She’s a young, tenure-track professor in Boston. She’s also an expert in witchcraft. By day, she studies the history of magic in colonial America―especially women’s home recipes and medicines―and exposes society’s threats against those fluent in these skills. By night, Connie harbors a secret. She’s the direct descendant of a woman tried as a witch in Salem, an ancestor whose abilities were far more magical than the historical record shows. When a hint from her mother and clues from her research lead her to realize her partner’s life is in danger, she must race to solve the mystery behind a centuries-old, deadly curse.
