Stacy Schiff

January 25, 2016 from 7:30pm

“History in the hands of Stacy Schiff is invariably full of life, light, shadow, surprise, [and] clarity of insight.” – David McCullough

Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Stacy Schiff is celebrated for biographies including Véra (Mrs. Vladimir Nabokov) and Cleopatra: A Life, deft forays into questions around women, power and history. Schiff’s latest book, The Witches: Salem, 1692, unpacks the deadly mystery of the Salem Witch Trials. During the exceptionally raw Massachusetts winter of 1692, a minister’s daughter began to scream and convulse, setting into motion a chain of events that would last less than a year, but would shape the future in curious ways. Schiff provides a psychologically thrilling and historically seminal account of the first great American mystery.
