LITTLE PRINCES: One Man's Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal
by Conor Grennan
Grennan's book chronicles his journey to Nepal as a 29-year-old volunteer in the Little Princes orphanage, where he discovers that the children there are victims of human trafficking. Awakened to the children's dire circumstances, he commits to making a difference by reuniting them with their parents. Grennan's ambitions are complicated by the ongoing civil war and by the harsh mountain landscape of Nepal. The book is at once a gripping adventure narrative and a tale of deep personal transformation. Like other One Book selections, Little Princes will provide opportunities for discussion of many pressing contemporary issues.
