Conor Grennan, author of the Campus Reading Program selection for fall 2012, will speak and sign books beginning at 4 p.m. Oct. 25, in the Student Union’s Loma Prieta Room. This event is free and open to the public.
“Little Princes: One Man’s Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal” tells Grennan’s story. About to turn 30 years old, he embarked on a trip around the world, starting with volunteering at the Little Princes Orphanage in war-torn Nepal.
What was supposed to be a three-month stint became much more when he learned many of the little princes were stolen from their homes by human traffickers. Grennan ended up dedicating his life to reuniting these children with their families.
He continues to travel regularly to Nepal, and he will share news from his latest trip at the SJSU event. Upcoming Campus Reading Program events include a dialogue on “Human Trafficking: A Global Concern” with Lecturer of Justice Studies Noam Perry and Assistant Professor of Health Science Miranda Worthen 3 p.m. Nov 20 in King 255/257.
