Book Talk: Loretta Orion, “It Were as Well to Please the Devil as Anger Him: Witchcraft in the Founding Days of East Hampton”

Goody Garlick was accused of witchcraft in the 17th century by Lion Gardiner’s daughter, Elizabeth Howell, who died days after childbirth. Was she really a witch or just a victim of the times? Who were the players in this intriguing story and how did the time period affect the outcome?
