We’re delighted to welcome author Janice Thompson for a book signing at the Salem Witch Museum on Friday, May 24, 2024. Thompson’s first novel is a historical fiction work titled Dry Tinder: A Tale of Rivalry and Injustice in Salem Village. The tale is based on the true story of the Towne sisters, three innocent women who were falsely accused of witchcraft in 1692. Told through the eyes of Sarah Cloyce, the only one of the trio who escaped execution, the book focuses on some of the complex issues that were prevalent in the decades leading up to the tragedy, among them boundary disputes, religion, wars, and disagreements with Mother England.

The signing will take place from 12 noon to 4 pm on our front plaza.

Dry Tinder is available in our online store at:
