National Gun Violence Awareness Day Book List

For National Gun Violence Awareness Day, we’ve partnered with Everytown for Gun Safety to support #WearOrange and build a future free from gun violence. The books below seek to provide a greater understanding of the impact of guns on our society and the nuances that surround this issue. This list provides a means to grapple with the disparate viewpoints, through personal accounts of lives affected by shootings, nonfiction historical overviews of the weapon, and fictional stories to understand the emotions of those affected by these tragedies.
