Left Bank Books welcomes social entrepreneur, Chris Wilson, who will sign and discuss his new book, “The Master Plan: My Journey from Life in Prison to a Life of Purpose,” with Jeff Smith!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of “The Master Plan” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

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. He wrote his Master Plan: a list of all he expected to accomplish or acquire. He is the embodiment of second chances, and this is his unforgettable story.
