RNK Bookclub for April
Saturday, April 18th, 11:00am
We begin with brunch followed by book discussion. We meet in each others' homes, rotating among ourselves. The book for April is THE HERETIC'S DAUGHTER by Kathleen Kent. Those that
will be sent address a few days prior to the event. Please RSVP no later than 1 week prior to the event so host has time to prepare. Book description follows:
Martha Carrier was one of the first women to be accused, tried and hanged as a witch in Salem, Mass. Like her mother, young Sarah Carrier is bright and willful, openly challenging the small, brutal world in which they live. Mother and daughter are forced to stand together against the escalating hysteria of the trials and the superstitious tyranny that led to the torture and imprisonment of more than 200 people accused of witchcraft. This is the story of Martha's courageous defiance and ultimate death, as told by the daughter who survived.
