This event was held on November 14, 2008 at Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
For more than a year and a half, award-winning YA novelist John Green ("Looking for Alaska," "An Abundance of Katherines," and his new book "Paper Towns") and his brother Hank, founder and editor of EcoGeek.org, have been communicating through videoblogs. Together, they are the vlogbrothers -- one of the most popular channels in the history of YouTube. What began as an experiment in bringing long-distance siblings closer has become a sprawling community devoted to books, social activism, and the love of all things nerdy.
The Green brothers have been featured in The Wall Street Journal and on NPR, Fox News and BBC Radio. John and Hank's videos have now been watched more than 12 million times, by tens of thousands of loyal viewers who call themselves Nerdfighters. This event includes a book signing, with books for sale courtesy of Borders.
