"The Other Wes Moore"

Join the Petworth Fiction Book Club on Monday, October 17, at 7 p.m. to discuss The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates by Wes Moore.

Though our book club usually reads fiction, we are making a departure to read this memoir because October's topic is DC Reads. DC Reads is a DC Public Library literacy program that promotes reading for pleasure by having city-wide celebrations focusing on one book. The goal is to appeal to a wide audience--high school students and adults of all ages--to generate in-depth questions and discussion. DC Reads uses various artistic means to discuss, display, entertain and celebrate the joy of reading.

Here is one exciting DC Reads event where you may get an opportunity to communicate with author Wes Moore.

Tuesday, November 1, 7 p.m.
Author Wes Moore hosts an online book chat. The chat session will open one hour prior to the event for your questions and comments. RSVP online. Ages 12 and up.

Go to the DC Reads page for more information about The Other Wes Moore and the program.
