Conor Grennan, author of Little Princes, September 10, 7:30 pm
“In search of adventure, 29-year-old Conor Grennan traded his day job for a year-long trip around the globe, a journey that began with a three-month stint volunteering at the Little Princes Orphanage in war-torn Nepal. What began as a game became a passionate commitment that would transform the young American and the lives of countless others.”
“Conor is a citizen of the U.S. and Ireland and a graduate of the University of Virginia and the NYU Stern School of Business, where he served as president of the student body. He is the President and Founder of Next Generation Nepal, and the author of the New York Times and #1 international bestselling memoir Little Princes: One Man’s Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal, which has been translated into twelve languages so far and has received a bunch of pretty cool awards. He is also a highly requested motivational speaker at universities and corporations (to the constant bewilderment of his wife and children) and he was named a Huffington Post Game Changer of the Year in 2011.”
Little Princes is the powerful story about finding a way to make positive change in the face of the most selfish efforts of others. It is a true story that is both heartbreaking and hopeful. You will meet children that you will not forget and maybe even feel inspired to create change in little and big ways.
