THE WITCH OF BLACKBIRD POND
Important, age-appropriate questions about truth and rumor, heart and society
Sixteen-year-old Kit Tyler gives up island life on Barbados to life with her aunt and uncle in a New England Puritan community. Struggling to fit in while staying true to herself, Kit finally finds a friend in Hannah Tupper, a woman accused of witchcraft. Through Kit’s journey, students contemplate the ways in which earthly freedom can be given or restricted, used with love or used with fear.
