Columbine author visits Paducah
By Todd Hatton
Paducah, KY – Just under a year and a half after Michael Carneal opened fire on a group of Heath High School students in late 1997, killing three and injuring five, two Columbine High School seniors, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, went on a rampage that left 13 dead and 24 wounded before turning their weapons on themselves. Jeff Kass wrote for the Rocky Mountain News before the paper closed this past March, and covered Columbine and other school shootings for ten years. He's turned those experiences into a new book, Columbine: A True Crime Story, a Victim, the Killers, and the Nation's Search for Answers, and he'll be in Paducah on June 18th on a book tour that includes many of the places that have seen school violence. Todd Hatton spoke with Kass about his upcoming visit.
