Discover the stories behind three riveting historical novels set in and around Boston. Kathleen Kent’s debut novel, The Heretic’s Daughter, is based on the life of her ancestor who was hanged as a witch in Salem in 1692. Blindspot, by historians Jane Kamensky and Jill Lepore, is a bawdy historical romance set in pre-revolutionary Boston featuring a well-born lady who disguises herself as a painter’s boy apprentice. John Pipkin’s Woodsburner tells of a little-known incendiary event in the life of Henry David Thoreau. Hosted by Megan Marshall, author of The Peabody Sisters: Three Women Who Ignited American Romanticism.
