Seung-Hui Cho, a troubled senior, heavily armed himself and shot thirty-two students and professors before killing himself. In MASSACRE AT VIRGINIA TECH, Richard Worth tries to make sense of this tragedy, honors the fallen victims, and highlights the debates over gun control and mental health that were sparked by the worst shooting rampage in American history.

In what has become the era of the mass shooting, we are routinely taken to scenes of terrible violence. Often neglected, however, is the long aftermath, including the efforts to effect change in the wake of such tragedies. On April 16, , thirty-two Virginia Tech students and professors were murdered. Experiencing profound grief and trauma, and struggling to heal both physically and emotionally, many of the survivors from Virginia Tech and their supporters put themselves on the front lines to advocate for change. Yet since that April, large-scale gun violence has continued at a horrifying pace. In After Virginia Tech, award-winning journalist Thomas Kapsidelis examines the decade after the Virginia Tech massacre through the experiences of survivors and community members who have advocated for reforms in gun safety, campus security, trauma recovery, and mental health.
