2018 O-Town Reads
O-Town Reads events are designed to bring our community together through the reading and discussion of a common book and give the members of our city -- both young and old -- an opportunity to connect and talk through a shared reading experience.
O-Town Reads brings friends, families, neighbors, and co-workers together through a common theme. Approximately 500 copies of the chosen title are given away to the community each year with the instructions to "read and pass it on"
THE OTHER WES MOORE
The compassionate, startling, moving true story of two kids with the same name from the city: One went on to be a Rhodes Scholar, decorated combat veteran, White House Fellow, and business leader. The other is serving a life sentence in prison. At each stage of their young lives, they had come across similar moments of decision, yet their choices would lead them to astonishingly different destinies.
