On Saturday, October 13, Back Bay Ringers teamed up with Brian Clements, editor of the anti-gun violence anthology Bullets Into Bells, for a presentation at the Boston Book Festival in Copley Place. The anthology was inspired by the shootings at Sandy Hook. Mr. Clements and four contributing authors read their poetry, and BBR provided musical interludes of contemplation and reflection.

The event was a preview of this spring’s “Season of Giving Back” concert series, where Mr. Clements and his fellow writers will join with BBR for continued reflection and action on the issue. All proceeds from our spring concerts will be donated to Stop Handgun Violence, a local charity dedicated to work on this critical social issue. Stay tuned for more information after the holidays.
