Spring Book Discussion Series: Forgotten New Hampshire Women reads "Hanging Ruth Blay" by Carolyn Marvin

Tuesday, March 3, 2020

In this series, we will explore the lives of four dynamic women with ties to New Hampshire. Whether faded into obscurity or known only for infamous acts, the subjects of these titles led dramatic and noteworthy lives. The eighteenth-century hanging of a schoolteacher for concealing the birth of a child out of wedlock has appeared in local legend over the last few centuries, but the full account of Ruth's story has never been told. Discussion led by Chris Benedetto.
