"Book On It"

“Where is your bookmark?”

My bookmark is in “Parkland: Birth of a Movement” by Dave Cullen. He also wrote “Columbine,” oddly one of my favorite books for its deep reporting of the subjects, the aftermath of the school shooting and heart for the survivors. I expect the same writing for this book, which chronicles survivors of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and their path to launch March for Our Lives, an initiative to prevent gun violence.

If you judge a book by its cover, you will buy this one right away. The cover features a peach sunset with protest signs along a chain link gate with one prominently noting “Never Again” with Florida nearly in the shape of a gun.
