Welcome to the official blog for SMU’s 2013 Common Reading: The Other Wes Moore! The blog was created to foster online discussion between faculty, staff and students as you experience the story behind The Other Wes Moore, One Name, Two Fates.
As the incoming class of 2017 you will receive the book during the summer at AARO and should read it before you arrive for the start of the fall semester. Faculty, staff and returning students have already begun reading and discussing the book in preparation for small-group conversations you will participate in before the Rotunda Passage and Opening Convocation on August 25th. And most importantly, your first-year writing courses will use the book as part of the curriculum for the fall semester.
