Pulitzer Prize-winning author Stacy Schiff visited Google's office in Cambridge, MA to discuss her book, "The Witches: Salem, 1692".
It began in 1692, over an exceptionally raw Massachusetts winter, when a minister's daughter began to scream and convulse. It ended less than a year later, but not before 19 men and women had been hanged and an elderly man crushed to death. "The Witches: Salem, 1692" puts a story we thought we knew into an entirely different light.
Stacy Schiff is the author of "Véra (Mrs. Vladimir Nabokov)", winner of the Pulitzer Prize; "Saint-Exupéry", Pulitzer Prize finalist; "A Great Improvisation: Franklin, France, and the Birth of America", winner of the George Washington Book Prize; and "Cleopatra: A Life".
