Summary, etc.:
"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.
