Kent State
by Deborah Wiles

May 4, 1970. Kent State University. As protesters roil the campus, National Guardsmen are called in. In the chaos of what happens next, shots are fired, and four students are killed. To this day, there is still argument of what happened and why.

Told in multiple voices from a number of vantage points, protester, Guardsman, townie, student, Deborah Wiles's narrative gives a moving, terrifying, galvanizing picture of what happened that weekend in Ohio. An event that, even fifty years later, still resonates deeply.
