Title Details
Bullets into Bells by McCann, Colum & Clements, Brian, et al., eds.
Bullets into Bells: Poets and Citizens Respond to Gun Violence in the US
by McCann, Colum & Clements, Brian, et al., eds.
 
A powerful call to end American gun violence from celebrated poets and those most impacted, including a foreword by Gabrielle Giffords and Mark Kelly and an introduction by Colum McCann, published on the fifth anniversary of the Sandy Hook shooting.

Focused intensively on the crisis of gun violence in America, this volume brings together poems by dozens of our best-known poets, including Billy Collins, Mark Doty, Rita Dove, Martín Espada, Naomi Shihab Nye, Ocean Vuong, and Juan Felipe Herrera. Each poem is followed by a response from a gun violence prevention activist, such as Nobel Laureate Jody Williams, Senator Chris Murphy, or Moms Demand Action founder Shannon Watts, or from gun violence survivors of the Columbine, Sandy Hook, Charleston Emmanuel AME, and Virginia Tech shootings. The result is a persuasive and moving testament to the urgent need for gun control.

The collection features an introduction by acclaimed novelist Colum McCann, whose organization, Narrative 4, is committed to supporting the book. Poets Yusef Komunyakaa, Jimmy Santiago Baca, Robert Hass, and Brenda Hillman have composed entirely new poems for this project. The collection also features work from Jane Hirshfield, Ada Limón, Natalie Diaz, and Danez Smith.
