In The Lottery, the townspeople would gather in the town square once a year. They drew pieces of paper out of a black box that represented death. Only the eldest male in the family or the husband could draw. Whoever drew the piece of paper with a black dot on it was sentenced to stoning. People of all ages would then stone the chosen one until she was dead.
The Animated Version of The Lottery by Shirley Jackson
He was the keeper of the box.
She drew the black dot and was stoned.
Her husband broke his leg and couldn't draw for them. Her son was only 16 so he could not draw either. She ended up having to draw.
The story was good but just a tad bit gruesome. The lottery was a lot different then the lottery today. Even the kids threw rocks at their mom. Iy was my least favorite story we read.
