"Kari is a total pro. She put me at ease immediately and asked smart questions. She had clearly read my book with interest and care. Particularly with the dwindling print media devoted to books, the literary world is fortunate to have BookRadio."

SALEM, 1692


Stacy Schiff

Pulitzer Prize Winner

"Cleopatra, A Life"

stacy schiff


The Puritan ethic ruled throughout the Massachusetts Bay Colony and Salem, in particular, in early 1692. Religious rigor was pervasive when the adolescent niece and the younger daughter of 39-year old Minister Samuel Parriss touched off a wave of diabolical fear and panic. The girls began to scream, bark and convulse. What followed over the next 9 months was a contagion of accusations, bullying, and public shaming that resulted in a series of trials and the hangings of 19 men and women and 2 dogs. An elderly villager was crushed to death. Many more women accused of witchcraft were imprisoned in Boston's wretched jails. Historian and Biographer Stacy Schiff powerfully reveals how this mysterious reign of terror prevailed during a dark, unsettled time. You'll learn the truth about witchcraft, the impressionable adolescent mind and how male-dominated society handled female self-expression.

A Story of Discovery



James Martin, S.J.

Editor-at-Large "America" Magazine,

Best-selling Author of

"Jesus: A Pilgrimage"

and "The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything"

james martin


What happens when a grief-stricken divorcee', a discouraged Architect-turned-handyman and the Abbot of the Abbey of Saints Philip and Paul meet? All are Seekers and all find themselves gently getting answers about their purpose in life and their relationship to God while at The Abbey in suburban Philadelphia. In his premiere novel "THE ABBEY", Jesuit James Martin uses humor and grace to tell the story of Mark, Ann and Father Paul and how they strive for spiritual connection amid very temporal concerns.
