Reading Group Guide
Q> Why does Susanna feel she is as guilty as Ann Putnam and her circle of girls? Do you think she shares their guilt? Q> Father English advises Susanna: "Think for yourself, daughter. But know when to speak and when to remain silent." Susanna had many chances to tell what she knew about Ann's circle. Why didn't she break charity with the girls? Would you have spoken up in her situation? Q> Why did the magistrates believe the girl accusers? Q> Susanna claims that "ideas were never encouraged in Salem." Why might ideas be discouraged? Q> John Indian says, "If we waited all our lives to do what was allowed, we would never do anything." Is it ever a good idea to do things that aren't allowed? Q> Why would Ann and her friends fake possession by the devil and accuse innocent people of witchcraft? How do you feel about their reasons? Do kids today do cruel things for sport and attention? Who could you turn to if you knew about kids creating trouble? Q> Why did Tituba and other prisoners confess to a crime they didn't commit? Q> Susanna believes the townspeople will forgive Ann when she asks for forgiveness. Why would they? Would you?
