Thursday marks the fifth anniversary of the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, in Newtown, Connecticut. On December 14, 2012, a 20-year-old armed with a Bushmaster rifle entered the school, and killed 20 first-graders and six adults.

Brian Clements's wife, Abbey, is a former teacher at Sandy Hook. She was in her second-grade classroom on the day of the shooting.

Clements is a poet, and he's co-editor of a new anthology called, "Bullets into Bells: Poets and Citizens Respond to Gun Violence."

The couple, along with other editors of the anthology, will be at the Boston Public Library on Wednesday.
