Parkland survivor David Hogg announces release date for his book 'Never Again' on gun control
The proceeds from the book will be donated to the community programs for the victims and gun violence prevention "to help heal the community."
Parkland school shooting survivor and anti-guns activist, David Hogg, on Monday took to Twitter to announce the release date of his book on gun control titled '#Never Again.' The book is scheduled to be released on June 5 by Penguin Random House, according to Hogg.
The book is reportedly co-authored by David and Lauren Hogg, the two siblings who survived the Florida school massacre on February 14 this year. A 19-year-old former student of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Nikolas Cruz, opened fire on the campus with his legally-bought AR-15 rifle, killing 17 people. Most of the victims of the massacre included students and teachers.
The survivors of the carnage, including David Hogg and Lauren Hogg, triggered a nationwide movement against gun violence called Never Again. The Florida shooting also spurred hundreds of teenagers across the nation to stage multiple school walkouts, to demand stricter gun control regulations from the country's lawmakers.
The duo were actively involved in the formation of the Never Again movement and also were a crucial part of the "March for Our Lives" rally in Washington, DC. The rally saw participation from thousands of people across the country, with people demanding stricter gun control legislation.
The siblings, while announcing the release date of the book, on Wednesday said that they have written a book how they "turned their grief into action," according to reports.
The book will reportedly tell the story of how David, 17, and Lauren, 14, sprung to action and became outspoken gun control activists after the massacre unfolded in their school in Parkland, Florida.
Lauren Hogg, in her tweet, wrote: "A book by @davidhogg111 and I that tells the story of how we turned our grief into action and how we fight and speak out for those who no longer can."
David Hogg said that the proceeds from the books will be donated to the community programs for the victims and gun violence prevention "to help heal the community."
