What test? Well, our local hero John Green puts it best: “The test will last your entire life, and it will be comprised of the millions of decisions that, when taken together, make your life yours. And everything – everything – will be on it. I know, right? So pay attention.”

You may be thinking: How did lessons dated January 11th and January 13th, featuring Benedict Cumberbatch and Ronald Reagan and the global carbon cycle, make it onto these DVD’s?

feline2You’ve caught us. These pictures aren’t from the DVD’s. They’re from the Tumbler, which you can reach by clickiing here.  http://thecrashcourse.tumblr.com/

YouTube of John and Hank Green at Carnegie Hall

If you weren’t able to make it to Carnegie Hall this past Tuesday–or Central Library, either, where we streamed the event–you can click on the picture of John Green below to see a YouTube video of his and brother Hank’s “An Evening of Awesome.”

As soon as the video begins, click where it says SKIP TO THE BEGINNING OF THE SHOW! Or, if those words don’t appear, drag yourself forward 35 minutes and 10 seconds.

The Fault in Our Stars

Let’s say happy birthday to The Fault in Our Stars! I mean the book by John Green.

Green and his brother Hank will be celebrating his novel’s anniversary at Carnegie Hall on Tuesday, January 15th at 7:00 p.m. Their musical guests will be the Mountain Goats.

If you can’t make it to Carnegie Hall that night, join us in the Clowes Auditorium at Central Library, where we will stream the event live.

“My nostalgia is so extreme that I am capable of missing a swing my butt never actually touched.” Attend this event, and your nostalgia for it will be within reason.

Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan

Will Grayson, Will GraysonJohn Green (Paper Towns, Looking for Alaska) and David Levithan (Boy Meets Boy, Nick & Nora’s Infinite Playlist) team up to write the story of Will Grayson …and Will Grayson. Both Wills live in different suburbs of Chicago and lead completely different lives. One lives in a posh neighborhood, the other doesn’t. One is gay, the other isn’t. One is indie, and the other is, well, wrinkled. By a weird twist of fate, the two Will Graysons meet in downtown Chicago while chasing different schemes of love. Check out the newest book of our Pass the Book author, John Green, when it comes out in April.    

 

 
Are you a fan of John Green? Be sure to come to the Central Library on Monday March 15th. John will be speaking about the vlogs he does with his brother Hank. The program starts at 7pm and will be in the auditorium. Be sure to bring your copies of John’s books so he can sign them. See you there!
