John and Hank Green, with special guests the Mountain Goats, will celebrate the anniversary of The Fault in Our Stars with a one-time event at Carnegie Hall. This event will be livestreamed, and Phoenix Books Burlington is inviting fans to join in the fun!
This event will start at 7pm sharp (but all latecomers are welcome!)
John Green attended a boarding school in Alabama not unlike Alaska's Culver Creek. After graduating from college in 2000, he worked as a chaplain at a children's hospital. His experiences with patients and their families during intense crises solidified his desire to write for teens and inspired him to bring his comic sensibility to a candid novel about the excitement of breaking the rules and the challenge of confronting loss. John now writes for several national magazines, both print and Web-based. He is also a commentator for National Public Radio's afternoon newsmagazine, "All Things Considered," and Chicago's "NPR" affiliate, WBEZ.
This book is a staff pick! Nick says, "I have enjoyed everything Green has written, but The Fault in Our Stars
is truly superior to all of them! Hazel and Augustus become fast
friends when they meet at a Cancer Support Group. Their wit, brilliance
and quirks make the novel a quick read; so quick, I immediately read it
