Wes Moore

Location: Literary Salon

Wes Moore Acclaimed author Wes Moore is a veteran, Rhodes Scholar and the founder of Bridge EdU. His most recent book, The Work, is a collection of, “…incredibly valuable lessons about what it means to create lives that matter…[it is] a way of exploring the meaning of success in a volatile, difficult, and seemingly anchorless world.” Moore’s first book, The Other Wes Moore is a thought-provoking search for answers through Wes’s transformative journey from reckless youth to mature adult.  It’s a story of mentorship and support networks who refused to let him fall into crime and drugs. Both books were instant New York Times Bestsellers.
