The School of Education and Human Services and the William H. Fitzpatrick Institute of Public Affairs and Leadership present an evening with Wes Moore on Monday, April 4 at 6 p.m. in the Grupp Fireside Lounge.  This event is free and open to the public.

Moore is a youth advocate, Army combat veteran, promising business leader and author.  His book, The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates, is a memoir about his life and its startling similarity to that of another Wes Moore from the same city.  Their destinies were ultimately determined by two very dissimilar series of life events.  His story tells a larger tale of personal accountability, chance, fate, and family and the vital importance of education and community in the lives of a generation of boys trying to make their way in a hostile world.  Copies of Moore’s book will be available for sale and signing afterwards.  To read more about him, click here.

The School of Education will also host an online book review community where the Canisius community can share thoughts on Moore’s book.  To subscribe to the Canisius College Partnership Book club, click here.
