Book Discussion: The Witches

Book Discussion: The Witches
by Stacy Schiff
October 28 @ 2:30
Salem, 1692
Suspicion, Betrayal, and Hysteria
It began in 1692 It ended less than a year later, but not before 19 men and women had been hanged and an elderly man crushed to death. The panic spread quickly, involving the most educated men and prominent politicians in the colony. Neighbors accused neighbors, parents and children each other.
As psychologically thrilling as it is historically seminal, The Witches is the fantastic account of this fantastical story — the first great American mystery unveiled fully for the first time
“The Witches is the fullest and finest story ever told about Salem in 1692, and no one else could tell it with the otherworldly flair of Stacy Schiff”
― Joseph J. Ellis, Pulitzer Prize winning author

Escape from the Nazis: A True Story

Mary Shier shares the remarkable tale of her father’s escape from the Nazis in WWII.

Bill Spinning was a lead bombardier stationed at Polebrook, England with the 8th Air Force, 351st Bomb Group, 509th Bomb Squadron. On his 9th mission, he and his crew were shot down while on a raid to Frankfurt, Germany. They had been hit by flak, the pilot had to lower his wheels to show he could no longer stay in formation. After making it back almost to the English Channel, Kentucky Babe was attacked by FW-190’s in the Somme region in France. With the plane going down all crew were told to jump. This is my father’s story of escaping and evading the Nazi’s with the help of the French Underground.
