Moms Demand Action To Hold Book Discussion About Gun Violence

By on October 2, 2017

The local chapter of Moms Demand Action will hold a discussion of A Mother’s Reckoning on Monday, October 16, at 7 p.m. at Watchung Booksellers, 54 Fairfield St., Montclair. The event is free and open to the public.

In her intimate memoir A Mother’s Reckoning, Sue Klebold, mother of one of the Columbine High School shooters, writes about living in the aftermath of that school shooting. In the book, Klebold bravely tries to understand what happened leading up to the terrifying events at Columbine. Twelve students and one teacher were killed on April 20, 1999. Klebold’s son Dylan and the other shooter also died.

Every day in America 93 people are killed with guns. Moms Demand Action wants to curb this epidemic. Moms Demand Action was founded by stay-at-home mom Shannon Watts on December 15, 2012, in response to the devastating shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The organization quickly flourished into a leading force for gun violence prevention, with chapters in all 50 states and a powerful grassroots network of moms that has successfully effected change at the local, state and national level.
