Nerdfighters, Assemble!

If the title of this post means something to you, then you probably already know about what I’m about to tell you.  But if you don’t, stay tuned, because St. Louis Public Library is hosting a great upcoming event.

Award winning young adult author, Youtube Vlogger, and educator, John Green, will be speaking at New York’s Carnegie Hall alongside his brother, Hank.  This event is being live streamed across the nation, and around the globe.  St. Louis Public Library’s Central branch is hosting this live stream from our Creative Experience room located on the first floor, next to the Teen Lounge, on Tuesday, January 15th @ 6:00 p.m.

If you are unfamiliar with John Green, he is the author of several award winning young adult novels: Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns, Will Grayson, Will Grayson, and The Fault in Our Stars.

His Vlog, called The VlogBrothers, which he hosts with his brother Hank, has a massive following.  Members of this community call themselves “Nerdfighters“.  Among its ranks are such luminaries as, actor Will Wheaton and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.  So, whether you are a Nerdfighter, a fan of John Green’s books, or simply a fan of young adult literature, this event will be a great chance to meet other like-minded individuals, explore the new Central library, and hear from one of the most celebrated young adult authors out there right now.
