The Little Prince turns 80 this year, and the author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry would have turned 123 years old yesterday. We explore what makes this hand-drawn world so compelling even now, and how the Little Prince has made his home in the Library's collections.
The National Book Festival is excited to partner again with PBS Books to bring conversations with featured authors to communities across the country, including Claribel Ortega, S.A. Cosby, Matthew Desmond, Angeline Boulley and more.
