CANCELLED: SLCL Presents Wes Moore - Five Days

St. Louis County Library HQ, 1640 S. Lindbergh

wes moore, five days

Following recommendations from the CDC, we regret that this event has been CANCELLED.

St. Louis County Library presents bestselling author Wes Moore.

When Freddie Gray was arrested for possessing an "illegal knife" in April 2015, he was, by eyewitness accounts, treated "roughly" by Baltimore police. By the end of his trip in the police van, Gray was in a coma he would never recover from. The killing led to five days described alternately as a riot or an uprising that caught the nation's attention. Bestselling author and former White House fellow, Wes Moore tells the story of the Baltimore uprising, both hrough both his own observations, and through the eyes of other Baltimoreans. Each shifting point of view contributes to an engrossing, cacophonous account of one of the most consequential moments in our recent history. 

This event is presented by the St. Louis County Library. For more information, please call 314-994-3300.
