Florida Shooting SurvivorsEyeing Book Deals to Push Gun Message
2/27/2018 1:00 AM PST
Some of the students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High are planning on using their newfound star power to get their gun control message out … through a good page-turner.
Sources tell TMZ that at least two of the outspoken survivors have been in talks with publishers for book deals. The deals haven’t been inked … the students are in the meeting phase with book honchos.
We’re also told that some of the students have been getting help from high-profile publicists to field requests and schedule media appearances. A lot of these kids have been all over the news lately, so it’d make sense they’re not handling all these bookings solo.
According to our sources … the point of this publicity push is to get their message across loud and clear — real gun control is needed now, and they’re insistent in bringing about change. One downside … the kids haven’t really had a chance to properly grieve.
As for book money … we’re not sure how much a deal would net the 2 survivors. We’re told they’d likely donate the cash to March for Our Lives … which is taking place in D.C. next month.
