The Wily Network invites you to join author Steve Pemberton for a virtual discussion on his book, A Chance in the World, moderated by Carmen Ortiz-McGhee and with an introduction from Wily Scholar, J’Saun Bastien, BC ‘21. Steve will share his thoughts, insights and perspectives on the impact of the current crises on college students and the challenges Wily Scholars are facing today.


The panel will be followed by a Q&A. Even if you haven’t read the book, we hope you will join us for this inspiring conversation!


About Steve Pemberton


After a difficult and painful upbringing in the foster care system, Steve Pemberton went on to graduate from Boston College (one of the schools attended by Wily Scholars). Steve’s experience attending college completely on his own, without support from family, is something that all Wily Scholars share. His story highlights the often invisible inequities many students face on college campuses, despite the seemingly equal playing field. A Chance in the World was one of the inspirations for creating the Wily Network, and we are incredibly grateful to Steve for supporting Wily and sharing his amazing story with the world.
