Another Common Reading Pick for Conor Grennan and LITTLE PRINCES

LITTLE PRINCES by Conor Grennan
We were delighted to learn that the entire incoming class of 2016 at San Jose State University will be reading, discussing, and engaging with Conor Grennan's Little Princes: One Man's Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal! Last year, students at St. Bonaventure University were empowered by Conor's story—and thrilled by his campus visit. This year, San Jose State University joins other institutions such as Central College, Michigan Technical University, Wingate University, and Otterbein College in choosing Little Princes.

Little Princes is the story of Conor Grennan’s epic battle to save the lost children of war-torn Nepal and how he found himself in the process. Grennan’s heartfelt narrative describes how a three-month volunteering experience changed his life forever. After coming to the shocking realization that most of the parents of the children at the Little Princes Orphanage were still alive, Grennan became determined to reunite the would-be orphans with parents who thought them long dead. At times an inspirational memoir, adventure tale, and love story, Little Princes is a real-life example of how great a difference one person can make in the world.

Have you and your students had a chance to read this powerful story yet? If not, get started now!
