The Nevins Library Presents:
Season of the Witch with Rory O’Brien
October 19, 2015 @ 7pm
Have you read The Crucible?
Do you love The House of the Seven Gables?
Or maybe you just love the history of the Salem area?
Salem licensed tour guide Rory O’Brien, author of the recently published novel, Gallows Hill, will lay out the story of what happened during the Salem Witch Trials, separating fact from fiction.
Rory grew up in New England, surrounded by books, history, and the long shadows of Poe, Hawthorne, and Lovecraft. He spent months haunting the streets of Salem, speaking with tourists, townies, witches, cops, and business owners. He spent a ridiculous amount of money in kitschy tourist attractions, read every guidebook he could get his hands on, and took every walking tour in town … all in the name of “research.”
His book Gallows Hill will be available for purchase.
