"The Salem Witch Trials of 1692":

Join us at Normanside Country Club, Delmar, Arrival at 5:30 pm dinner at 6:30 pm

Marilyn Rothstein, aka M. E. Kemp, a past resident  of Delmar will talk to us about the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. This should be an interesting program and a good time to rekindle old friendships.

M.E. Kemp has roots in Salem, MA that go back to 1636.  The author of five historical mystery novels, working on a sixth, she could not resist including a plot set in Salem, 1692, the year of the famous Witch Trials.  Kemp's research revealed so much information she decided to create a separate talk on the excess material, hence "The Salem Witch Trials of 1692."  Kemp gives the talk all over New England and New York State.  She was born in Oxford, MA, a town her ancestors helped to settle in 1713 and where her family still reside.  Kemp is former Vice President of the Hudson Valley Writers Guild and is an active member of the Speaker's Bureau of Sisters in Crime, New England chapter.  Her books include "Death of a Dutch Uncle" and "Death of a Cape Cod Cavalier."  She also writes articles and short stories which have appeared in many publications.  Kemp is married to Jack Rothstein and lives in Saratoga Springs.
