Parkland Students David and Lauren Hogg Ink Book Deal
The sibling activists are working on '#NEVERAGAIN: A New Generation Draws the Line,' and will donate their proceeds.
Parkland survivors and siblings David and Lauren Hogg have landed a book deal.
The students, who survived the deadly Florida high school shooting that claimed 17 lives earlier this year, announced on Wednesday that #NEVERAGAIN: A New Generation Draws the Line will be hitting bookshelves on June 5.
#NEVERAGAIN will be a statement of generational purpose, and the story of their lives, a declaration for the current times, and an in-depth look at the making of the #NeverAgain movement that arose after the tragic shooting, according to a release. The book is being commissioned by Mark Warren at Random House and by David Granger at Aevitas Creative Management.
The Hoggs, who have become leading gun control advocates since the Feb. 14 tragedy, plan to donate their proceeds to "charity and local community organizations." Random House is calling the book "a moving portrait" of a new political movement and announced that the publishing company will also make a donation in the Hoggs' name to Everytown for Gun Safety.
"Today @lauren_hoggs and I are announcing our book #NeverAgain that tells the story of the foundation of this movement for those we lost," David Hogg wrote on Twitter. "Lauren and I will be using the money made from the book to help heal the community."
