The One Book Read is an annual event for WKCTC and the whole community. The selection for the 2016-17 One Book Read is Little Princes, by Conor Grennan. The One Book Read encourages the community, area schools, and colleges to come together to read and discuss the same book, in an effort to help eliminate illiteracy in our region.

The story of Little Princes began when Conor Grennan set off on a trip around the world and volunteered for a time at an orphanage in Nepal. He found that not all the children were orphans; some had been separated from their families by traffickers during a civil war. Grennan began working to reunite families, and improve the lives of impoverished Nepalese families. Upon returning to the U.S., he wrote a compelling book about the breaking and mending of children and families in the remote Himalayan country of Nepal.
