October in New England often means picturesque foliage, apple harvests, and, of course, stories of witch trials. On October 17th, local teacher and historian Patrick Cumpstone will speak on the Connecticut witch trials of 1647-1697. The talk will include an overview of the trials, his research and explanation of why they happened, and information regarding their rising popularity and influence across the state.
