Now that we're in the "spooky" time of year, a book about Sales and witches seems appropriate. You remember the Wicked Witch of the West, the Witches of Eastwick, and the witches in Hocus Pocus, don't you? Witching is enjoying a (long) moment right now, and Salem is, and always has been, a tourist magnet. Travel writer Ocker moves to Salem with his family to spend the magical month of October in the Halloween capital. But something fell flat. You expect a travel book from a travel writer. But even the descriptions were flat, the interviews with residents and tourists were flat, and the author didn't think there was anything new to report of the Salem Witch Trials. Our cozy little group wasn't too enchanted with this book, but you'll need to decide that for yourself.
