Westborough Historical Society Presents Author Andrew Noone

On Monday, October 25, the Westborough Historical Society hosted Worcester native and author Andrew Noone, who discussed his new historical nonfiction, “Bathsheba Spooner: A Revolutionary Murder Conspiracy.” In the first capital case in the United States, the first woman executed in America, Bathsheba Spooner, was convicted in 1778 of plotting the murder of her husband Joshua Spooner in Brookfield. Her teenage lover and two other accomplices were also convicted. In this real-life thriller, Noone emphasizes the often understated, but pivotal, role Worcester played in the Revolutionary War.
