I, Tituba, Black Witch of Salem | Maryse Conde, Richard Philcox
post image

Black authors have done more to open my mind than any other demographic. I would not be the person I am today without these writers, their stories, the characters, and the challenges they gave me to face in the mirror and the world. If you're looking for a new book to read, try one of these. Black History Month still has nineteen days left!!!

I just finished teaching this to my juniors. I‘m not sure if they loved it as much as I do. This is the bulletin board in my classroom. The fine print says “Salem witches were hanged, not burned.”

Kimberlone I have a tshirt my sister gave me that says the same thing! 2w

Despite taking me way longer than it should have to finish this, (thanks to lack of reading time), this was SO good, if not nearly perfect. Witches, ghost, witchcraft, history, complex characters....oh, where to start! Love how the author was inspired by her own family history, too. Also, yet another ghost ends up becoming one of my”book boyfriends”. Guess I have a “thing” for literary ghosts 😂

Nute You have motivated me to consider reading this sooner rather than later! 1w

Tituba was born on a slave ship after her black African mother, Abena, is raped by a British sailor. Abena is ultimately executed by hanging. Tituba is adopted by Mama Yaya who teaches her voodoo. A slave, John Indian, takes her to live with him in Salem, MA. It‘s 1692 and the Salem witch trials have begun. She is imprisoned as a witch but manages to escape. I won‘t reveal what happens next because that would be a massive spoiler. ⚠️ Explicit

OnlyYoo Wow this sounds so interesting! Stacked 1mo
suvata @OnlyYoo It definitely was a different kind of story but I found it very interesting. 1mo

Very easy read. Predictable, light, and fun. Not in my list of favorites, but I'd for sure go for another book from her when looking for a "cozy" mystery to speed through.

I‘m totally feeling this bookmark tonight! “How To Hang A Witch” is 100 kinds of awesome! Love when the bookmark I pick ends up “matching” my book ♥️

Literary_Siren I loved this book! She‘s an amazing author. I‘ve had Killing November on my TBR for months but haven‘t gotten to it. 1mo
Jess_Franzino @Literary_Siren I just ordered “Haunting the Deep “‘and I‘m only 33% through “How to Hang A Witch”. I LOVE how the author draws from her own amazing family history to create works of supernatural fiction. I read she‘s an actress & screenwriter as well. A very fascinating woman in and of herself! 1mo
Literary_Siren Absolutely!! I can‘t wait to see what else she comes out with! 1mo

A tidy, cozy mystery, with a slightly overused trope but thoroughly enjoyable.
