When it comes to literature, teaching the classics is important. But it's a good idea to add contemporary titles to your curriculum, too, especially if your students sometimes have trouble connecting with older texts.

That’s why we created the Discovering Literature collection, a curated selection of noteworthy books that are capturing the attention of teachers and students across the country.

This month’s Discovering Literature Digest features stories of horror, both real and imagined. From mysterious tales of the supernatural to historical accounts of humanity’s darkest days, these books are sure to captivate your students.
