New members are welcome. The group reads and discusses mostly non-fiction books on New England history with occasional historical fiction. We meet the last Tuesdays of the month at 2 p.m. will be meeting at the Kent Memorial Library this fall and winter. Contact Jackie Hemond at if interested in joining.

Our book for October 31 is The Ruin of All Witches: Life and Death in the New World by Malcolm Gaskill (2022) 336 pages.

The Ruin of All Witches tells the dark, real-life folktale of witch-hunting in Springfield, Massachusetts. These were the turbulent beginnings of colonial America, when English settlers’ dreams of love and liberty, of founding a city on a hill, gave way to paranoia and terror, enmity and rage.
