Summary
  • "Based on hundreds of hours of research, interviews, and access to exclusive sources and materials, Sandy Hook is Elizabeth Williamson's landmark investigation of the aftermath of a school shooting and the work by a group of Sandy Hook parents to defend themselves and the truth of their children's fate against the frenzied distortions of online deniers and conspiracy theorists"--Dust jacket flap
  • On December 14, 2012, a gunman killed twenty first graders and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Ten years later, Sandy Hook has become a foundational story of how false conspiracy narratives and misinformation have gained traction in society. Some people insist it never occurred, or was staged by the federal government as a pretext for seizing Americans' firearms. They harass the victim's relatives and accuse them of faking their loved ones' murders. Williamson tells of how the Sandy Hook families refused to accept this harassment and misinformation, and are defending themselves and their children's memories against online deniers and conspiracy theorists -- adapted from jacket
