Conor Grennan is a citizen of the US and Ireland. He grew up in Poughkeepsie NY and Jersey City, NJ. He spent eight years at the EastWest Institute (EWI), both in Prague and the EU Office in Brussels, focusing on peace and reconciliation in the Balkans. He left EWI in 2004 to travel and volunteer in Nepal, where he ultimately started Next Generation Nepal (NGN), an organization dedicated to reconnecting trafficked children with their families.

Conor was based in Kathmandu, Nepal, until October 2007, when he returned to the US. He is still active in NGN and serves on the Board. He holds degrees from the University of Virginia and the NYU Stern School of Business, and currently lives in Connecticut with his wife and son.

“I steeled myself for this interaction. Fact: I knew I could talk to people. Fact: Children were little people. Little, scary people. I took solace in the fact that if this demonstration went horribly wrong, I could probably outrun them.”

Polls

This poll is for the 'first' quarterly Non-fiction selection in our BT group. We had an outstanding response in nominations, with even more members holding off for the next quarter. I can only hope to see a book discussion that is half as lively.

Should we have a tie, there will be a very short 3 day additional poll to select one winner this quarter. However, if this non-fiction selection stays this popular - there could be multiple winners in the future. Time and thread participation will tell...
