We are all better than our worst decision. That’s the message of “The Master Plan: My Journey from Life in Prison to a Life of Purpose,” a memoir by Chris Wilson.

At 17, Wilson was sentenced to life in prison. Behind bars, he reflected on his troubled upbringing and focused on building a positive future. Wilson details his improbable path to freedom and the challenges he’s faced since returning home.

He will be in conversation with Wes Moore on Saturday at 7 pm, at an Ivy Bookshop event hosted by the Church of the Redeemer - 5603 N Charles Street.

You can also see Chris Wilson's art at an exhibit at the Peale Center. Or at the American Visionary Art Museum's exhibit "PARENTING: An Art without a Manual," through September  1.
