IL 5-8, RL 5.1
in this small Vermont town is about to change forever. The year is
1924 and the Ku Klux Klan has come to town. The story is told from
a variety of viewpoints so we see how the Klan's presence affects different
members of the community. Young Leonora Sutter is a 12 year old Black
girl. She and her father are the only Blacks in town. Six year
old Esther Hirsh and her father are the only Jews. Although these
young girls are the main targets of the Klan, there are others in the town
who are seen as different and targeted by the Klan. As the days go
on, we see how attitudes change and the people change.
