The story of the 'Lost Children of Nepal' will be told

FAIRFIELD - The Fairfield Public Library will act as host to Conor Grennan, author of  "Little Princes: One Man’s Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal" at 7 p.m. Feb. 23 at 1080 Old Post Road.
Grennan, 29 will discuss and sign his newly released book, organizers said in a release.
"In search of adventure...Grennan traded his day job for a year-long trip around the globe. His journey began with a three month stint volunteering at the Little Princes Children’s Home, an orphanage in war torn Nepal," the release said.
"Grennan was stunned when he learned that these children were not orphans. For a huge fee, child traffickers were promising families in remote villages to protect their children from the civil war by taking them to safety. They would then abandon the children far from home, in the chaos of Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu. Little Princes is a true story of families and children and what one person is capable of when faced with seemingly insurmountable odds. At turns the book is tragic, joyful and hilarious, but Little Princes is a testament to the power of faith and the ability of love to carry us beyond our wildest expectations."

Grennan, shown, spent eight years at the EastWest Institute both in Prague and the EU Office in Brussels where he served as deputy director for the Security and Governance Program, the release said. He founded Next Generation Nepal, an organization dedicated to reconnecting trafficked children with their families and combating the root causes of child trafficking in rural villages in Nepal, the release said.
He now serves on the board of Next Generation Nepal. He is a 2010 graduate of the NYU Stern School of Business.
"One person can make a difference."
