Shoutouts: Hillsborough disaster story highlights long list of great reads
It’s been way too long since the last Shoutout post on the B/R Blog. That means the pieces that our Quality Editing team have recommended for recognition have stacked up, so in the interest of this post not stretching to 5,000 words, I’m mostly just going to list them. Spend your time reading these great pieces, not this post.
But first, a short paragraph on Hillsborough Stadium Disaster 25 Years On: How English Football Changed Forever by Graham Ruthven, which was published yesterday, on the 25th anniversary of the disaster.
Ruthven recaps the Hillsborough stadium disaster with the aid of numerous historical documents and quotes from players and families who were affected by the tragedy, as well as those with more conspiratorial ideas. He frames the incident in as positive a light as possible given the circumstances, showing how English football grew from the incident.
