The Little Prince: A Virtual Tour of Saint-Exupéry's draft manuscript and drawings

Join Christine Nelson, Drue Heinz Curator of Literary and Historical Manuscripts, for a look at Antoine de Saint-Euxpéry's working drafts for The Little Prince, a classic story that suggests how we can combat isolation by trusting in the imagination, acknowledging pain, and building meaningful connections—even in a time of physical distancing. "You must be very patient," the fox tells the little prince. "First you will sit down at a little distance from me—like that—in the grass."
