The Master Plan

This summer, the Boston College Class of 2023 has been reading The Master Plan: My Journey from Life in Prison to a Life of Purpose (G.P. Putnam’s Sons/Penguin Random House, 2019) by Chris Wilson, with Bret Witter. Wilson grew up in violent circumstances and was sentenced to life in prison for first degree murder. In prison, he got his diploma, earned an associate’s degree, and read hundreds of books. He focused on self-improvement and developed a “master plan” to turn his life around, and if he ever got out of prison, develop a business and help others. Listen to Wilson talk about his book on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.” Wilson will speak to the Class of 2023 at First Year Academic Convocation on Sept. 5. Learn more about BC’s tradition of the common read for first-year students and convocation in this video.
