CC Reads program -- 7 p.m., March 20
Active Image Annie Stephens has been traveling the state talking to students, teachers, parents, really anyone who is interested in making our schools safer.

Stephens is a mother and the Ohio Outreach Coordinator for the Sandy Hook Promise, a nonprofit organization founded and led by several family members whose loved ones were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, 2012.

She will visit the library at 7 p.m., Tuesday, March 20, to present the program, "Taking Action to Prevent the Next Tragedy." The program is being held in conjunction with Clinton County Reads 2018.

Sandy Hook is the deadliest K-12 school shooting in U.S. history, with 20 students and six teachers killed. Stephens will talk about the Sandy Hook Promise's mission to protect children from gun violence and the small, but meaningful actions all citizens can take to make our communities safer and work toward achieving this goal.

The program is free and open to the public.

Clinton County Reads 2018 features programs and discussions related to the book "A Mother's Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy," by Sue Klebold, mother of one of the Columbine High School shooters.
