Postponed - Young Maestro Goes to Homecoming Book Reading
Our Maestro Fresh Wes Goes to Homecoming book reading event scheduled for this Sunday, Sept. 25 at the Faculty of Education has been postponed. Hurricane Fiona is preventing Maestro Fresh Wes from traveling from New Brunswick to London.
Stay tuned as we will announce a new date within the next few days. Wes, Rhodora, and the Faculty of Education are very excited to host you then.
This jam is amplified, so just glide and let your backbone slide!
Western alumni, friends and their families are invited to a literary and musical adventure with Juno-nominated, Canadian Hip Hop legend Maestro Fresh Wes and Faculty of Education alumna Rhodora Meliton-Vanderpool, BA’98, BEd’99. The two teamed up to write the children's book Stick to Your Vision. Young Maestro Goes to School, which celebrates family, mentorship and the contributions of elementary school teachers to children’s success.
A book signing and sale will take place immediately following the performance.
Live and in person, Rhodora and Wes will reflect on their Western experiences and discuss the themes of perseverance, motivation and the importance of teachers. Wes will read a chapter from the book and perform his new single, Backpack Check. Williams recently released his ninth studio album, a juno nominated children's album called, Champagne Campaign. He has played school teacher Paul Dwyer on the CBC series, Mr. D. and he is currently host of the CBC original competition series Race Against the Tide. Rhodora Meliton-Vanderpool is a proud Western alumna and has dedicated over 20 years to teaching in Toronto. She is an educator, advocate, mentor and author.
The first 10 people to register online will receive a complimentary copy of the book, Stick to Your Vision. Young Maestro Goes to School.
Presented by the Faculty of Education and Alumni Western.
