Dinner starts at 4:30 p.m. and lecture starts at 7:00 p.m.
The Massachusetts village of Salem lost many innocent lives during the infamous witch-hunting era. The same manufactured delusions brought forth at the witch trials preyed upon Mary Perkins Bradbury. She was convicted and sentenced to die on September 9, 1692. In her own words, she will tell of her experiences during the Salem witch hunts, and how she ultimately escaped the gallows.

Performing as a character actress and Chautauquan since 2010 via her business “Western History ALIVE!”, Kim regularly portrays several local and national historic figures which include stagecoach driver Charley Parkhurst, Genoa and Nevada suffragist Lillian Virgin Finnegan, frontierswoman Calamity Jane and Libbie Custer, the wife of General George Armstrong Custer.
