Samuel Sewall Book Discussion

Our Brown Bag Book Discussion will take place Tuesday, May 13 at 12 Noon in the Library's Pratt Room. Please bring your lunch and join us for a lively discussion of one of the infamous Salem Witch Trial judges. If time and weather permit, we will take a short walk to the crypt of the Sewall family in the Granary Burial Ground behind us. Or you can look out our Reading Room windows and view the site.

Here are some links to reviews of this book. We look forward to hearing your comments:
