DENVER — Susan Klebold, the mother of Columbine High School shooter Dylan Klebold, plans to write a memoir in which she will confront the “indescribable grief and shame” that she has lived with since the April 1999 massacre, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.

Crown Publishers told The AP that it had acquired the book. Klebold wanted to share her story after the murders at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut in December 2012 and other school.

There is no title or release date for the book, and all profits will be donated by Klebold to mental health research and charitable organizations.

Klebold and fellow student Eric Harris killed 13 at Columbine before killing themselves on April 20, 1999.

    I encourage everyone who wishes to read it to illegally download it. If she wants to write to find solace in her son’s disgusting deeds that’s fine but her and the publishing company shouldn’t make a dime!

        I agree with you, sstormsphotography, this woman isn’t guilty, she just so happens to be the mother of someone who did a very terrible thing.

        I don’t know why people hate the parents so much, it happens in every case. If your child is a drug addict, it’s your fault. If your child has a mental illness, it’s your fault. How sad.

    I am looking forward to reading Mrs Klebold’s book. I cannot imagine the pain and grief she must have suffered over the years. I think if the Police had released all the basement videos and been more transparent over the years there wouldn’t still be such mystery and interest in it. Dylan and Eric would have been shown to be the sad misfit teens they were.

      I plan to read her book as well. Like you, I can not imagine the horror of her life since that day. The families pay a high price when one member does wrong.
