School Library Journal: Grade 5-8–In alternating free verse, two Mohawk sisters tell of their lives at the Carlisle Indian School near the turn of the 20th century. Carvell uses the experiences of her husband's family, and research from the Cumberland County Historical Society, to relate the stories of Mattie and Sarah. After their mother's death, their father sadly dispatches them to the boarding school, where the siblings cling to their language and a few precious items as the rest of their culture is stripped away from them. They long for family, for friendship, and for home, but their attempts to obtain any of these things result in a tragic and true-to-life ending. Sweetgrass basket - Marlene Carvell
The forbidden schoolhouse: The true and dramatic story of Prudence Crandall and her students. By, Suzanne Jurmain From Booklist:Booklist *Starred Review* Gr. 5-8. Jurmain has plucked an almost forgotten incident from history and has shaped a compelling, highly readable book around it. In 1831, Prudence Crandall opened a school for young white ladies. When asked by an African American teenager if she might join the class, Crandall, whose sympathies were with the abolitionists, agreed. So begins a jolting episode in which Crandall turned her school into one for girls of color, and is both tormented and sued by the citizenry of Canterbury, Connecticut, who wanted no part of African Americans in their town.
Prudence Crandall is honored October 23, 2008 Senate President helps dedicate Prudence Crandall statue inside State Capitol. Senator Williams welcomes Canterbury’s First Selectman and Museum Director to the Capitol for a ceremony. http://www.senatedems.ct.gov/pr/ williams-081023.html
