Wes Moore—a youth advocate, business leader, and author—will present a free, public lecture.
WHEN: Wednesday, October 5, at 7:30 PM (NOTE DATE CHANGE)
WHERE: the Hyman Forum of Goucher College's Athenaeum.
In his New York Times Bestseller, Moore tells the fascinating story of "the other Wes Moore"—a man who shared his name and a similar personal history but arrived at a starkly different fate. The Other Wes Moore is the story of two kids with the same name, both living in Baltimore City. One grew up to be a Rhodes Scholar, decorated combat veteran, White House Fellow and business leader. The other is serving a life sentence in prison for felony murder.
Compelled by their similar upbringings, Moore wrote The Other Wes Moore to discover how small choices make big differences.
Moore has been featured by such media outlets as People magazine, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Time magazine, CSPAN, and MSNBC.
