Virginia Beach residents have been sharing stories about Grace Sherwood, the Witch of Pungo, since she was ducked in the Lynnhaven Bay during her witchcraft trial in 1706. As the story goes, Grace floated on the water rather than sinking, proving her guilt. She spent seven years in jail before returning to her home. What was her life like?
Join us at VBPL's author talks with Scott Moore, Beach native and author of โ€œThe Witch of Pungo: Grace Sherwood in Virginia History and Culture.โ€
