One Book selection is ‘Little Princes’
“Little Princes,” a memoir by Conor Grennan exploring his experiences as a volunteer in an orphanage in war-torn Nepal, is the 2013 selection for the “One Book, One Region” reading program. Grennan will be introduced at a kickoff event at 6 p.m. May 28 at the Mystic Arts Center.
The book centers on Grennan’s discovery that the children he was working with were, in fact, not orphans but instead targets of a child-trafficking operation.
This is the 12th year for “One Book, One Region,” the aim of which is to bring people together to read a common work and discuss ideas inspired by the experience. Libraries, schools, bookstores and reading groups across eastern Connecticut participate, and a variety of programs and activities will take place leading up to a finale presentation, also with Grennan in attendance, that will take place in September.
