On Saturday 23 November 2013 ten children were shot dead. The youngest was nine; the oldest was nineteen. They fell in suburbs, hamlets and ghettos. None made the national news. It was just another day in the death of America, where on average seven children and teens are killed by guns daily.
Gary Younge will be in conversation with WoW's very own Madeline Heneghan, Co-director of Writing on the Wall.

Liverpool Mental Health Consortium and Writing on the Wall celebrated the launch of the soundscape: Finding Some Way Through (A City of the Mind), created by project participants, led by composer and musical director Patrick Dineen.
On Monday 16th January at The Rotunda Cafe, we had an excellent turn out, full of enthusiasm and thought-provoking listeners willing to add their own 'inner city' thoughts to the city the participants had already created.
If you missed out on hearing the piece, it is now available to listen to on the Liverpool Mental Health Consortium's Soundcloud.
Writing on the Wall have recruited a new Project Manager and an Administrator and Social media Editor. The standard of the many applicants for the posts was very high, and we're grateful to all those who applied. Both of our new staff members start in the next few weeks and we look forward to welcoming them to our team and introducing them to you.
Following on from the success of The Great War to Race Riots Project, Writing on the Wall is teaming up with The University of Liverpool on an exciting new project – Lives and Legacies 1919, to continue exploring the impact of the 1919 race riots and the lives of those who were affected by the violence and the social and economic climate of the period.
We are looking for a team of volunteers to take part in the project to explore; Marriage and Partnership in Liverpool, Legacies of 1919 on Merseyside, and Official Responses. Lives and Legacies will culminate in a public event to share what we have discovered.
The project will run for 10 months and you can decide on the elements of the project which interest you most. We will also provide training in any skills which you may require, including archiving, conducting interviews or any other aspects of the projects.
A brilliant celebration and launch event of our Pulp Idol - Firsts 2017 book - an anthology of first chapters from the new novelists who won our Pulp idol Competition, took place on Thursday 8th December. The book is available through Writing on the Wall and online by clicking here.
