Description

Glimmer of Hope is the official, definitive book from The March for Our Lives founders, who came together in the aftermath of one of the deadliest mass-shootings in American history to lead an ongoing movement to end gun violence in all communities.

Glimmer of Hope illustrates how a group of teenagers channeled their rage and sorrow into action and went on to create one of the largest youth-led movements in global history. With personal essays from survivors and a close look at how their collective activism turned conversation into action — via rallies, social media postings, televised town halls, voter registration drives, and ultimately a march on Washington to mobilize for national reform — Glimmer of Hope offers a roadmap for meaningful, youth-led change.

Praise For Glimmer of Hope: How Tragedy Sparked a Movement

"Glimmer of Hope provides a blueprint for launching social change...There are moments reading Glimmer when you may forget that the leaders of March For Our Lives are kids. Some of the book's authors are still too young to vote. But this book will also help you remember...in their short lives, they have not only survived a mass shooting, they have also channeled their emotions into coherent writing. They are now published authors."—NPR.org

"This is a clarion call to action for teens, by teens, and is moving and powerful."—Booklist, Starred Review

“Inspiring.” —Kirkus Reviews

"This collaborative collection of essays by friends and family of Parkland victims exudes optimism and conviction...a must buy."—School Library Journal
