This is a fast reading, riveting book that portrays the human side of the January 8, 2011 shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and eighteen others – and the healing that is taking place.
Written by a Tucsonan living a few blocks from the site of the shooting who is an ardent fan of “Gabby,” The Tucson Tragedy takes readers right to the scene and into the hearts and minds of the victims and their families, the heroes, the suspected assailant and everyone else impacted by this heart-wrenching tragedy. Without politicizing or sensationalizing the event and its far-reaching ramifications, this book renders a soul-searching treatment of the underlying dynamics and lessons to be learned from this ghastly event.
“Dr. Newport does an excellent job of portraying the creation of a community of healing out of the ashes of this tragic shooting…This is truly a book written from the heart.”
- From the Foreword by Rabbi Stephanie Aaron
