The Little Prince: A New York Story At The Morgan Library & Museum

Readers throughout the world have been charmed by The Little Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s tale of a cosmic traveler who comes to Earth in search of friendship and understanding. Did you know that French-born Saint-Exupéry wrote and illustrated the famous story right here in New York City? The 1943 novella was first published in the U.S., (not France!) both in English and French. At “The Little Prince: A New York Story,” view the original manuscript and watercolor drawings. Explore the American origins of a poignant story that timelessly reminds us: what matters most can only be seen with the heart. Free with museum admission. themorgan.org
