First Thursday Book Discussion
Columbia Public Library, Virginia G. Young Room
Bring a brown bag lunch and join us to discuss “The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates” by Wes Moore. The author was completing his studies at Johns Hopkins University and had just been named a Rhodes Scholar when he happened upon a newspaper article about another Wes Moore who was on his way to prison for armed robbery and the killing of an off-duty policeman. Stunned at their shared name and early origins, Moore contacted the other man and began a long relationship, determined to understand the factors and choices that led them to such vastly different fates. Moore ends the book with a call to action and a detailed resource guide.
