When was the last time you revisited one of your favorite books from childhood? This month we will be discussing the classic story The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Read the book on your own and let's get together to talk about it.
First published in 1943, The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry has been translated into more than 250 languages, becoming a global phenomenon. Heart-breaking, funny and thought-provoking, it is an enchanting and endlessly wise fable about the human condition and the power of imagination. A book about both childhood and adulthood, it can be read as a parable, a war story, a classic children's fairy-tale, and many more things besides: The Little Prince is a book for everyone; after all, all grown-ups were children once. --Publisher's description.
You can check out The Little Prince at your favorite Chicago Public Library branch by placing a hold request.
