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.
Go Big Read started 11 years ago and has grown to be one of the largest college common reading programs. It has united UW-Madison and local communities in reading and discussing timely topics, all with the goal of gaining a better understanding of each other and the issues.
