2020-2021 Go Big Read: Parkland: Birth of a Movement by Dave Cullen

Cover of Parkland

Taking on the different voices and perspectives of the March for Our Lives Movement’s key participants, Parkland is an in-depth examination of a pivotal moment in American culture. Cullen guides us into the hearts of the Douglas students as they cope with the common concerns of students everywhere. As ​a celebration of the passion exhibited by these astonishing students​, who channeled their anger into a movement, this book explores hope after tragedy and is an inspiring call to action.
