The Lottery - Shirley Jackson (1948)

Doing my English assignment on Divergent/dystopian fiction I came across a famous American example of a early dystopian short story. I read it, and I loved it. I can't say much else without spoiling the story. But if you read it, push through and read until the end - it's definitely worth it.

Here's a link so you can read it online:
