Halloween is just around the corner and Birchbark Books is getting into the spirit with a mystical celebration of Adriana Mather's debut novel How to Hang a Witch. Mather, whose ancestor, Cotton Mather, was an integral part of the infamous Salem Witch Trials, explores her connections from the past through this wickedly intriguing YA fiction that follows our heroine as she navigates history, high school, romance and the occult. Check out the book trailer video. A book signing will follow the reading. Refreshments will be available and who knows, maybe a spell or two will be cast! All ages welcome, costumes encouraged!
