The Connecticut teacher who helped save students’ lives during the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in 2012 is writing a book about the experience. Publisher G.P.Putnam’s Sons has confirmed that “Choosing Hope: Moving Forward from Your Life’s Darkest Hour” by teacher Kaitlin Roig-DeBellis, will be released next spring. Roig-DeBellis hurried 15 grade one students into a bathroom upon hearing gunfire at the school in Newtown, Connecticut, on Dec. 14, 2012, saving their lives. The gunman killed himself after gunning down his mother, six teachers and 20 children. The publisher says the book will be a poignant account of personal triumph over unbearable tragedy.
