11th Annual One Book, One Bakersfield, One Kern

One Book, One Bakersfield, One Kern announces its literary lineup for the 11th annual community book read. This year’s book, “The Other Wes Moore” by Wes Moore, is part memoir, part biography. It’s a story of two Wes Moores growing up at the same time in the same neighborhood, but who end up on vastly different life paths – one a Rhodes Scholar, decorated war veteran, and successful businessman; the other one a convicted felon serving a life sentence in prison.

Led by Kern County Library and CSU Bakersfield, the One Book committee has pulled in multiple community partners to present free programming related to the book. The read begins with a kickoff event in September followed by six weeks of expert panels, book discussions, arts events, and more. The read culminates with the author himself giving a free talk at CSUB on Nov. 8th.
