Backderf will talk about his book, Kent State: Four Dead in Ohio.
On May 4, 1970, the Ohio National Guard gunned down unarmed college students protesting the Vietnam War at Kent State University. In a deadly barrage of 67 shots, 4 students were killed and 9 shot and wounded.
This graphic nonfiction title tells the story of the 1970 Kent State student massacre. This is a moving and troubling story about the bitter price of dissent—as relevant today as it was in 1970.
Using the journalism skills Backderf employed in his other works of graphic nonfiction, My Friend Dahmer and Trashed, Backderf has conducted extensive interviews and research to explore the lives of these four young people and the events of those four days in May, when the country seemed on the brink of tearing apart.
