It is one of the most tragic stories in recent memory. On April 20, 1999, two high school students, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, went into their school in Colorado and murdered twelve of their schoolmates and a teacher before killing themselves.
Nearly twenty years later, there still is a lot of myth surrounding the Columbine shootings. Who were these two seemingly normal teenagers? Why did they do it? Who were the victims? Could this have been prevented? After spending a decade investigating this event, journalist Dave Cullen released his book, Columbine. In the book, Cullen debunks many of the false rumors about the story while chronicling the events leading up to that day, spending much time analyzing the characters of Harris and Klebold.
We will be discussing Columbine at the next meeting of LTPL’s Generation Next Book Group. The meeting will take place on September 26 at 6:30 p.m. at the Red Brick Cafe, 8952 1st St. in Baroda. Food will be provided.
If you’re 18 or older, we would love to have you join our meeting. Be sure to stop by the library ahead of time to pick up a copy of the book so you can read it in advance. Then join us at the Red Brick Cafe on September 26.
