Publication will “Help Heal the Community”
Two of the young gun-grab heartthrobs from Parkland Florida are being rewarded handsomely for his “reporting” on the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas School. They’ve landed a book deal–or perhaps the book deal landed them?
Entertainment Weekly reports:
David Hogg and Lauren Hogg, students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and survivors of February’s deadly mass shooting in Parkland, Florida have signed a deal with Random House for a book to be published in June, EW has confirmed.
The siblings have been leaders in the gun control movement that took shape among students, in the aftermath of the Parkland shooting. Their book, #NeverAgain, is described as “a statement of generational purpose, and a moving portrait of the birth of a new movement.” The book will explore their efforts taking on some of the most powerful forces in Washington and beyond, and will detail their commitment to new legislation aiming to prevent future tragedies.
“In times of struggle and tragedy, we can come together in love and compassion for each other,” David Hogg said in a statement. “We can see each other not as political symbols, but as human beings. And then, of course, there will be times when we simply must fight for what is right.”
Hogg’s most recent escapade involved leading an advertiser boycott of Laura Ingraham’s cable news program because the broadcaster poked fun at the fact that Hogg was only admitted to fourth-tier universities.
NeverAgain is scheduled to be published on June 5. That’s not much time to put a book together, so their ghost writers had better get started!
Today @lauren_hoggs and I are announcing our book #NeverAgain that tells the story of the foundation of this movement for those we lost. Lauren and I will be using the money made from the book to help heal the community. #NeverAgain out June 5th https://t.co/Vh2gWVWNGq
