Sacred Heart University Picks The Other Wes Moore for Summer Reading

The incoming freshman class at Sacred Heart University will be reading The Other Wes Moore as their first summer reading assignment. The author, Wes Moore, will also be speaking on campus  to the Sacred Heart freshman class and the entire University on September 5, 2012. The college recently announced its 2012-13 title selection with enthusiasm for both the challenge and inspiration this book offers.

The Other Wes Moore is a thought-provoking look into the “fates” of two men with the same name. One man became a Rhodes Scholar, a White House Fellow, and a successful investment banker, while the other is now spending a life sentence in prison for the murder of a police officer. Both emerged from similar environments, yet they now inhabit two different worlds; author Wes Moore sets out to answer how and why. The book has already been adopted for common reading at more than twenty colleges & universities.
