John Green at Takoma Park Community Center
January 14, 2013 by Jane Jonas
Come out to the Takoma Park Community Center auditorium on Tuesday, Jan. 15 at 7 p.m., as the library partners with Politics & Prose Bookstore to watch a live streaming of “An Evening of Awesome.” This is an event hosted by top young adult author John Green (“The Fault in Our Stars” – check out our review here!) and his brother Hank Green, original creator of the Green Brothers’ “Nerdfighters” website.
The actual “Evening of Awesome” will take place at Carnegie Hall in New York City and is sold-out. But the program, which will include surprise visits by other authors and music by the Mountain Goats, will be live-streamed, and so we’ll be showing it on the big screen in Takoma Park’s Community Center auditorium. So come and gather with other John and Hank Green fans — and other “Nerdfighters”!– to enjoy this unique program. Politics & Prose will be selling books at the program, but no purchase is necessary to attend. Spaces are limited, however, so registration is required.
