The livestream for acclaimed author Mary Sharratt's presentation of her new novel DAUGHTERS OF THE WITCHING HILL (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) at Kris Waldherr Art and Words studio-gallery on March 15, 7pm EST. Set in Lancashire, England during the infamous witch trials of 1612, DAUGHTERS OF THE WITCHING HILL reveals the true story of Bess Southerns, aka Old Demdike, cunning woman, healer and the most notorious of the Pendle Witches, and of Alizon Device, her granddaughter, struggling to come to terms with her family’s troubling legacy. Though the name of the Pendle Witches lives on, few know the hard-hitting details of the witch-hunt which tore apart a community. Set in an era of religious intolerance, political strife, suspicion and social inequality, this haunting story of strong women and family love and betrayal is more relevant than ever.
This is the first of a series of book events at Kris Waldherr Art and Words gallery. For more information, visit http://www.kriswaldherr.com/events.html.
