Chris Wilson Author Program

Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum
Atlanta, GA

Wednesday, February 13, 2019 - 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Growing up in a tough Washington, D.C., neighborhood, Chris Wilson was so afraid for his life he wouldn't leave the house without a gun. One night, defending himself, he killed a man. At eighteen, he was sentenced to life in prison with no hope of parole.

But what should have been the end of his story became the beginning. Deciding to make something of his life, Chris embarked on a journey of self-improvement--reading, working out, learning languages, even starting a business.
