Cook Memorial Library, in collaboration with the Tamworth Historical Society, has received a grant from the NH Humanities Council to present the program: “ Witches, Pop Culture, and the Past” tonight Wednesday, October 29 at 7:00 PM at Cook Memorial Library just in time for Halloween. In 1692, nineteen people were executed in Salem and hundreds imprisoned during a witch hunt . Robin DeRosa says: " Salem tells its witch stories, history tourism, and performance collide, and 'truth,' both moral and macabre, vies with spooky thrills for its authentic place in history." The program is free and open to the public with refreshments. For more information contact the library at 323-8510.
