About the Author

Shirley Jackson, a prolific American writer, was born in San Francisco in 1919. Much of her writing was done during the years she was raising her children. She is perhaps best know for the short story "The Lottery" first published in 1948 and adapted for television in 1952 and into play form in 1953. Jackson's published works include articles, nonfiction prose, plays, poetry, two family books, seven novels, and fifty-five short stories. Among her best-known novels are We Have Always Lived in the Castle and The Haunting of Hill House, which was adapted to film. Jackson died in 1965 after years of poor health.

From Our Editors

Stories of magic and witchcraft were strictly forbidden in Salem, Massachusetts in the 1600s, but, as The Witchcraft of Salem Village tells it, a group of young girls ignored those rules, spellbound by tales told by a woman named Tituba. When questioned about their activities, the terrified girls set off a whirlwind of controversy as they accused resident after resident of being witches. Author Shirley Jackson examines in careful detail this horrifying true story of accusations, trials, and executions that shook a community to its foundations.
