All Fairfax Reads, the library’s community-wide reading program, is now in its eighth year. This year’s selection is the memoir Little Princes: One Man’s Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal by Conor Grennan.
Grennan’s book recounts how a three-month volunteer stint in a small Nepalese village transformed into a personal mission to reconnect trafficked children with their families. Grennan’s team has reconnected almost 300 families with children they feared were lost to them forever. Little Princes has been described by one reviewer as “funny, touching and tragic.”
Grennan will present a program on September 21 at 7:30 p.m. on the Fairfax campus of George Mason University as part of the Fall for the Book Festival.
“The beauty of this book is partly the fact that it is a memoir. But it is also more than that. I defy you to not be inspired or moved by this saga.”
