Katherine Kerestman will present the tragic history of the Salem Witch Trials, followed by a pictorial exploration of the culture of present-day Salem; the program will conclude with an overview of some of the other creepy destinations to which she has traveled – destinations associated with macabre stories all over the U.S., Mexico, Europe and China.
Following the program, Kerestman will be available for book sales and signing.
