Endgame:The Calling


January 7th @ 7:00pm
At The New Canaan Library

Join us for an author talk with James Frey


ENDGAME: THE CALLING by James Frey & Nils Johnson-Shelton

is an engrossing novel at the core of a groundbreaking immersive, multi-platform reading experience. The ENDGAME trilogy follows twelve teens as catastrophic events lead them on a global quest in search of three ancient keys that will save not only their bloodlines but the world. More than an apocalyptic adventure tale, each book in the series will feature an interactive puzzle comprised of clues that will lead to the location of a hidden key. The first eligible reader to solve the puzzle for the first book and find the key will win $500,000 dollars' worth of gold. Similar to the characters in the novels, readers will embark on their own hunt for a hidden key. The subsequent two books in the Endgame series will have progressively larger payouts. For the lucky reader who is the first to solve the puzzle in the second installment, the prize is $1 Million dollars and a whopping $1.5 for the third book.

Wes Moore, author of
"The Work: My Search for a Life that Matters"

@ St. Lukes School, New Canaan, CT


Moore's first book, "The Other Wes Moore", tells the story of a generation of boys trying to find their way in a hostile world, and the hard choices that lead to personal success or failure. Poised for publication early January 2015, "The Work" is Wes Moore's powerful and inspirational account of his quest to forge a meaningful life, find fulfillment and make a positive impact on society. Despite his valuable accomplishments - from scholarly pursuits to service in Afghanistan and the government- Moore shows that true success lies not in what we achieve or gain personally, but in what we add to society and to the lives of others.

Wes Moore is an Army combat veteran, national bestselling author, and social entrepreneur. His first book, "The Other Wes Moore", became an instant New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller. He is the host of “Beyond Belief” on the Oprah Winfrey Network and Executive Producer and host of “Coming Back with Wes Moore” on PBS.
