Wes Moore Community Event
Please rsvp by November 18.
Mr. Moore will be available for a book signing immediately following the program.
Author Wes Moore's visit will culminate the newspaper serialization of The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates . The serialization and author's visit are sponsored by International Paper, in conjunction with Facing History & Ourselves and The Commercial Appeal's Newspaper in Education program, Fresh Reads, and Christian Brothers University.
Moore, author of this powerful New York Times best-seller, seeks to help young people redirect their lives. He tells the story of two kids with the same name, living in the same city. They started in similar neighborhoods, but grew up to lead very different lives. One became a Rhodes Scholar, decorated combat veteran, White House Fellow and business leader. The other is serving a life sentence in prison for felony murder.
