Lizzie Borden @ 3 p.m. (Teenz)
The Lizzie Borden case is without parallel in the criminal history of America, and it divided public opinion as no murder trial had ever done.

Animal Farm @ 3 p.m. (Teenz)
The animals on a farm drive out their master and take over and run the farm for themselves. The experiment is successful, except that someone has to take the deposed farmer’s place. George Orwell’s satire on the perils of Stalinism has proved magnificently long-lived as a parable about totalitarianism anywhere and has given the world at least one immortal phrase: “Some are more equal than others.” For middle school and above.
