Knowing about the book and what an incredible story it is, it came as no surprise to me when it was announced today that Wes Moore, the dashing, charismatic, and intelligent author of “The Other Wes Moore,” would be appearing on The Oprah Winfrey Show and on CBS Sunday Morning.
Here is the editorial description for the book:
Two kids with the same name were born blocks apart in the same decaying city within a year of each other. One grew up to be a Rhodes Scholar, decorated combat veteran, White House Fellow, and business leader. The other is serving a life sentence in prison. Here is the story of two boys and the journey of a generation.
Don’t be surprised if these appearances result in even more publicity for this great story. This one might just take off.
