In the spirit of Halloween, the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh is hosting a lecture exploring witchcraft and folk magic with Thomas White. White is a local author and historian, who is both an adjunct professor in Duquesne University’s history department as well as the university archivist and curator of special collections in the Gumberg Library. The lecture will work from the hex murders of the 1920s and 1930s and work up to the reasoning behind why witches still resonate so strongly in modern lore. Be sure to check out this intriguing and truly unique lecture.
