Event Details

It was a new world. The settlers from England had gained a foothold in the verdant land called “Amerika”. Old traditions would be laid aside, new ones instituted. Greed, jealousy, suspicion would still persist. Were these at the root of “The Salem Witch Trials”? Innocent residents of Salem, Massachusetts were tried and many executed in perhaps the most infamous chapter in early American history. Meet Goode Rebeka, an elderly woman hanged as a witch in 1692, but was she? Perhaps by the end of the program you will be able to answer that question.

Please join Lincoln Library and Jessica Michna of First Impressions as she takes us back through history in a presentation just in time for Halloween! This event will take place on Tuesday October 26 at 6 p.m. in Carnegie North at Lincoln Library. Any questions please call us at (217) 753-4900 ext. 5630 or email us at
