If the Broom Fits… Halloween and the History of Witches: presented by Grounded Goodwife-an in-person and Zoom presentation! Wednesday, October 27 at 6:30 p.m.

Have you ever wondered, especially on Halloween, why witches are depicted as riding on brooms through the nighttime sky? (It’s a story you may find difficult explaining to the kids!)

You’re never going to look at sweeping the same way again…

How did the benevolent image of a wise woman transform into the malevolent figure of the witch we know today?

This event is being presented by Ehris Urban and Velya Jancz Urban on Zoom. Library patrons are invited to watch the Zoom presentation at the library on the big screen in our DeMayo conference room!
