Dogtown: Death and Enchantment in a New England Ghost Town, a non-fiction examination of the mysterious history surrounding this some-say-enchanted place and a brutal crime set there. Those of us who appreciate local authors have certainly encountered at least one title by Anita Diamant (the Red Tent, Good Harbor, et.al.), so we’re balancing the book club medley by including a work of historical fiction. The Last Days of Dogtown portrays life in this early American mythical community of witches, widows, orphans and spinsters. In mid-January we’ll host a continental breakfast and book club discussion comparing and contrasting these two renditions of Dogtown.

Google Doodle today you know it’s the 200th anniversary of Brothers Grimm. In the fabric of our being we carry the lessons from Grimm's fairy tales told to us since a young age. In our exhibit Witches: Evolving Perceptions we look at Hansel & Gretel's hag archetype. Small wonder we're afraid of witches, it's said they eat children!
