Nick Douglas over at lifehacker has shared a great list of 1923 copyrighted works that will enter the public domain January 1, 2019.  This is the first time in over 20 years that a full year of copyrighted works will be released.  The list includes movies, like Charlie Chaplin's The Pilgrim, music, including "Yes! We Have NO Bananas!", and BOOKS, including Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf.  Once open to public use, these films, pieces of music, and certainly books, could lend themselves well to a teen program focused on re-telling or mashing up elements of the works.  Check out the article and full list HERE.
