Shirley Jackson Centenary: A Voice for the Outsiders

It’s no secret that Shirley Jackson is a favorite writer of mine. I first read her in high school, quite by accident. I don’t remember what the assigned reading for my English class was for that day, but I remember that I was bored and flipping through the big textbook when I happened upon a story called “The Lottery.” And the rest as they say is history.
