PLS Reads 2021 will take a look inside the novel The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates, by Wes Moore, as the featured book for this year’s initiative.

Each year PLS identifies a topic that is relevant on a community, state, and national level. Members of the community select a book to be read and PLS provides programming throughout the year to explore and discuss the issue further.

The Pioneer Library System will present multiple monthly book discussions to take place throughout the year, leading up to a presentation featuring author Wes Moore during November.

Place a hold on a physical copy of The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates in our catalog, or download the eBook from OverDrive.

The eBook version is always available for the duration of PLS Reads, so there won't be a wait for a copy.
