John 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.

Don’t forget the Pass the Book program continues through the week of Match 7th, 2010. Don’t know about Pass the Book? It’s a virtual teen reading program where the library hands out specially tagged copies of John Green‘s three books, Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, and Paper Towns. After you get a copy, you will do three things:
* First, visit the Pass the Book website, , to register your copy. When you register the book you’ll be given the option to leave a comment and upload a photo of the book.
*Second, of course, read the book.
*And third, when you’re done, pass the book on to someone else with instructions to do the same: Log it in, read it and Pass it On!
Now that we’re halfway through the program, we want to know what you think. What is your favorite part of the program? What do you think we can do to make the program better? Which book did you like the best?
Would you like to participate? Check with your branch to see if there are any books available. Be sure to log on to Pass the Book to register your book. And don’t forget to click on the dashboard link to watch your book move around the city!
Want to join a book club that goes beyond reality? The Pass the Book program @ IMCPL is just for you! It’s easy to do and you don’t need anything to participate.
The event will kick off this Friday October 2nd at the First Friday Event at Central Library. After Friday you can get a special Pass-the-Book copy at your local IMCPL branch or–starting October 5th–at five Indianapolis schools.
When you get your copy you log it in at www.imcpl.org/pass , read it, and pass it on to a friend. When you log and pass the miles traveled will be “logged” and you can see where the book you had has traveled and what other readers thought about it.
The books are all by John Green, an Indianapolis native. The three titles; An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns, and Looking for Alaska. All three books are hilarious, quirky and wildly entertaining. Once you read one you’ll want to read the other two.
REMEMBER: The books that you’ll pass around, once the program starts on Friday, will be specially prepared paperbacks, NOT the copies that you can request off this blog page.
