AUTHOR TALK RESCHEDULED @ GOUCHER COLLEGE

clip_image001THE OTHER WES MOORE

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.
