Gun violence ripped apart their lives, now literature will help them heal.

Julian J. Torres, a 37-year-old, recently-paroled scholarship recipient, bursts into Professor Helen Payne's office—he has missed the first session of her contemporary literature course. He charms his way back into class, and the two become unlikely friends connected through the power of great literature. Funny, painful, and hopeful, The Assignment reminds us that there is life after the unthinkable.

Inspired by real conversations with perpetrators of gun violence and families of victims.
