The Other Wes Moore Makes an Impact on Penn State Berks Students

Penn State Berks recently selected The Other Wes Moore by Wes Moore for its 2012-2013 Common Reading program. All incoming baccalaureate students were required to read the book prior to the start of the fall semester. We were thrilled to learn that the book and the author’s visit had a real impact; the university shared this positive feedback from one of its first-year students:

“All throughout high school as horrible as it sounds I never read our books assigned for class. I was never interested in reading something that just didn’t interest me, like Shakespeare. But, when I discovered I had to read a book for first year seminar, I assumed it would just be like all the high school books I was assigned to read. I went and bought the book, read the back cover and thought it sounded interesting and started reading. I was glued to the book and couldn’t put it down, which was a first for me.”
