Lowell teens bring best-selling author to city

LOWELL — Inspired by the best-seller “The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates,” a memoir of two city youths who stumble on their journey to manhood, four local teenagers joined on a yearlong adventure that culminated last Wednesday with the author’s visit to Lowell.

“We wanted to take a step toward something new and different and bring the community together,” said April Rom, 17, of Lowell, one of the Greater Lowell Technical High School students who helped bring Moore to Lowell.
