Phoenix Books is sponsoring three students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., who founded March For Our Lives. Emma González, David Hogg, and Alex Wind are scheduled for the Burlington stop on their Glimmer of Hope book tour. The event will take place at 6pm at the , and is the only Vermont stop on this tour.

GLIMMER OF HOPE: How Tragedy Sparked a Movement (October 16, 2018) chronicles the events of Feb. 14 and the creation of March for Our Lives from the founders of the movement, including Emma González, Jaclyn Corin, David Hogg, and others. Through first person essays and oral histories, Glimmer of Hope shows how and why these students and alumni of Marjory Stoneman Douglas persevered during their grief. It is a raw and honest look at a tragedy, and demonstrates the power a small group of people can wield.

All of the authors’ proceeds, and a large percentage of Penguin Random House profits will benefit the March for Our Lives Fund and the ongoing fight for gun violence prevention in the United States. Phoenix Books will also donate a portion of book proceeds to the fund.
