Larkspur Library Book Club: Special Edition: The Other Wes Moore
Wednesday, July 22, 2020
Join the Larkspur Library for a special edition of the book club to discuss Wes Moore’s book The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates.
Two kids named Wes Moore were born blocks apart within a year of each other. Both grew up fatherless in similar Baltimore neighborhoods and had difficult childhoods; both hung out on street corners with their crews; both ran into trouble with the police. How, then, did one grow up to be a Rhodes Scholar, decorated veteran, White House Fellow, and business leader, while the other ended up a convicted murderer serving a life sentence? Wes Moore, the author of this fascinating book, sets out to answer this profound question. In alternating narratives that take readers from heart-wrenching losses to moments of surprising redemption, The Other Wes Moore tells the story of a generation of boys trying to find their way in a hostile world.
This event is made possible by the Friends of the Larkspur Library. Join today!
