ABC’s Diane Sawyer to Conduct First TV Interview With Mother of Columbine Shooter

Sue Klebold will discuss topics revealed in her memoir, “A Mother’s Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy”

ABC News Anchor Diane Sawyer will conduct the first-ever television interview with Sue Klebold, the mother of Columbine shooter Dylan Klebold.

Klebold will discuss the topics revealed in her memoir, “A Mother’s Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy.”

The interview will air during a one-hour ABC News primetime special investigating school shootings and mental health in February, 2016.

In her book, which will be released on Feb. 16 by Crown, Klebold writes about coming to terms with her son’s murder-suicide.

In 1999, Dylan Klebold and fellow senior Eric Harris killed 12 students and one teacher at Colorado’s Columbine high school before taking their own lives. Another 21 people were injured.

Sue Klebold has said the 2012 Sandy Hook shootings convinced her to share her story. She’s donating all of her profits from the book to research and to charitable foundations with a focus on mental health issues.

Excerpts from Sawyer’s in-depth interview will air across all ABC News platforms, including “Good Morning America,” “World News Tonight with David Muir,” “Nightline,” ABCNews.com, ABC News Radio and ABC NewsOne.
