John Green’s Biography

(For contact info, click here.)

John Green is the New York Times bestselling author of Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns, and The Fault in Our Stars. He is also the coauthor, with David Levithan, of Will Grayson, Will Grayson. He was 2006 recipient of the Michael L. Printz Award, a 2009 Edgar Award winner, and has twice been a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. Green’s books have been published in more than a dozen languages.

In 2007, Green and his brother Hank ceased textual communication and began to talk primarily through videoblogs posted to YouTube. The videos spawned a community of people called nerdfighters who fight for intellectualism and to decrease the overall worldwide level of suck. (Decreasing suck takes many forms: Nerdfighters have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to fight poverty in the developing world; they also planted thousands of trees around the world in May of 2010 to celebrate Hank’s 30th birthday.) Although they have long since resumed textual communication, John and Hank continue to upload two videos a week to their YouTube channel, vlogbrothers. Their videos have been viewed more than 500 million times, and their channel is one of the most popular in the history of online video. He is also an active Twitter user with more than 3.8 million followers.

Green’s book reviews have appeared in The New York Times Book Review and Booklist, a wonderful book review journal where he worked as a publishing assistant and production editor while writing Looking for Alaska. Green grew up in Orlando, Florida before attending Indian Springs School and then Kenyon College.

Thanks so much for all you do with crash course. The videos are great, and I always recommend them to my college students. I do have one suggestion that I wanted to send privately. I was thinking about the videos, and it occurred to me that in the cartoon animation/overview that plays near the beginning in every episode there aren’t any “cartoon characters” in a wheelchair say or a significant number of different racializations, religions, etc. I’m always very interested in issues of cultural representation. I know various factors are involved, but it would be great to see ablebodied-normarivity challenged in small ways, for example.
Thank you for your time.

Hi John,
First off I just want to thank you for your crash course videos. I received my world history AP exam results two days ago, and I was overjoyed when I found out I had made a four. This was my first AP exam and prior to taking the test I was watching your crash course videos religiously. They were a quick refresher over topics and were also fun and entertaining. So thanks for your help and everyone who makes the show possible. I will be back again for U.S. history. I also am a fan of your books. I read them in reverse order of when they were published. I fell in love with all of your characters but I must say “An Abundance of Katherines” was my favorite. I could relate to Collin because he was so nerdy and Hassan was hilarious. So thanks again for crash course and your amazing books. You are someone I look up to.

Best Wishes,
Lillie Shelton

Hello John

My name is Paula, I am Audiovisuals major with a focus in Communication Media. I am working on a independent documentary on Youtubers called “Youtubers: Touch Screen Talent”, so I’m moving to Los Angeles for a three months (July 15th to October 15th) just to work on it. I’m contacting you because I was wondering if you will grant me an interview for it, at any time during those three months. It won’t last more than one hour and the idea is that you talk about yourself, how you started on Youtube, everything that’s related to your youtube career, about your books, movies and all those things.

I you want I can answer any question you have through my e-mail: paulatorabusiness@gmail.com. I also have Joey Graceffa and Screen Junkies confirmed for it, and I’m working on more talent, just in case you need talent support.

If you could respond to this e-mail either way, I will really appreciate it.

Thank you so much for your time

Regards,

Paula

Dear Mr. John Green,
I know you might not read this or maybe you will but I hope you do….Well let me just start by saying I’m a huge fan of your master pieces and of course you. Your books have made me become a better person with more knowledge thanks to you I finally got out of my depression. But what I want to talk to you is about our wonderful library in Indianapolis. I am a teen volunteer at my local library which is the Southport Library. I am a member of our Teen Advisory Board at our library which is the only one right now at a library. But we are having a book discussion about “Fault in Our Stars” In mid October. But I was wondering if when you came July 14 to Indianapolis in the old national center if you would be kind enough to give us an interview to talk about in our book discussion. Reachel and I and along some other library workers will be there for your tour, We hope to get there early as of 6 am to get good seats. We are very eager to see our idol who gave us so much hope and love all throughout a book. You made me get over so many fears and you got me over my grandpas death (he had a hard battle of lung cancer and brain problems). I hope you allow us to interview you this upcoming Tuesday……..
From an eager pupil who is like a sponge,
Hairo Rivas

I belief that the world needs things to belief in Mr. Green. Things like heaven or fairytale, a happy ending, and the great perhaps. Sure i have no idea what i am going to do with my life but here’s the thing what’s the fun in knowing?
Life can change in an in stand and if lying in my bed at 11 o’clock at night is what i care to do then why not? I realise that one day in the future i will find the great perhaps or meet a guy who will go gyocatching with me or spend a night just saying yes but until then i will spend my life as i please. That might just be solving the mystery of my very own Alaska or getting over the fear of oblivion!

I have a question! Will you be doing signings or meet and greets in Columbus? I’m going to be there tomorrow and the day of the event, and I was wondering if there was a time I could talk to you or get a photo with you for my college’s newspaper, The Independent Collegian at The University of Toledo! I’m a columnist, so I’m using my journey to Columbus as my welcome back article! It would really mean a lot to not only me and the staff of the collegian but to the students of UT as well! I’m majoring in English and have been a fan of your work for a long time so it really would mean the world to me! Thanks!

I’m going to state the obvious by saying I know that you have no earthly idea as to who I am. But one day you will. That is the whole motive as to why I went to Mr. John Green’s twitter page & official website to try and figure any way possible that there would be even remotely the slightest chance that this message would find him.
My name is Mathew Ali Gutierrez. I am a 18 year old highschool graduate from the STEM Academy at Robert E. Lee high school in San Antonio, Texas. My favorite food is cereal & cookies and I absolutely love The Fault In Our Stars. Now that you know a bit about me, let me get down to the reason as to why I decided to take a leap of faith and send you this message.
I want to change the world. I want to save lives. All throughout my life I’ve always known that my life has been meant for something greater than the circumstances I was born with. I am not wealthy, I can’t afford everything else the other kids have. My mom is a stay at home wife, my stepfather works as a construction worker. We don’t always get what we want, but we always have everything we need. I wasn’t born into the family that Kendall & Kylie Jenner were blessed with, no. But I’m making the most of what I have.
I’ve written stories that need to be shared with the world. Now, I could have gone to anyone else on God’s green earth with this message, but I chose you and Mr. John Green. I want to change the world. As a whole, we are in dark times. And I believe I have the power to change that. All I need, is a chance. My contact information will be at the end of this message. I hope this message finds you well, Mr. John Green. Or to anyone who’s willing to help me change the world.

Thank you.

YOU ARE SO COOL ILYSM THANK YOU FOR BEING YOU!!!!! YOU ARE SUCH AN INSPIRATION TO ME AND I HOPE YOU CAN TAKE THE TIME TO READ THIS . Your books are so poetic and ingeniusly creative I would and will read anything you write. “Frankly, I would read your grocery lists.” I will be at the Night on the Towns event near Philadelphia, PA. I am so excited to see you all. I hope to meet you one day because you are so funny and relatable. I’ve heard that you are a lot of fun to talk to. To be honest, I completely despised reading until I picked up The Fault In Our Stars. All of my friends were telling me how great it was and I thought, “Fine. I’ll read it.” I have been completely in love with reading since I read it because it was so beautiful and made me so emotional. So I truly, truly, truly thank you. You have opened my eyes to so many new worlds. I’m such a nerd now XD.
I have a few questions. Who is YOUR “John Green” or huge inspiration? Do you have a favorite book or author? Have you been working on any new books or has Paper Towns taken up most of your time?
I hope you and your life continue to be awesome. DFTBA Please e-mail me back! It would mean the entire world and universe and I don’t even know how much to me. My e-mail is kungpooa@verizon.net. I look forward to meeting you at some point in time.

I was a writer.

Then I found you.

Now I don’t have to write anymore. You write everything I want to write, and far better than I could ever have. The emotions, the drama, all perfect. All I do now is read and read.

I first came to know about you after the movie TFIOS. It was amazing. So I thought lets try some other works of this guy. And I got Paper towns and Looking for Alaska. And I said Wow! This guy can really write. But none of these were as good as the movie. So I thought may be that wasn’t you, but the movie, you know, the actors and background music.

And then I read TFIOS-the book, and I found out how wrong I was. The movie did not do any justice with what you have given to us. There is no comparison. Especially the eulogy that Augustus wrote for Hazel, that was good in the movie, but brilliant in the book. I have read that part at least Fifty Billion times.

After The Catcher in the Rye, TFIOS is my favourite book now.

Thank you for becoming an author.

Hello John, my name is Geraldo and I’m from Brazil. I just finished read “Looking for Alaska” and began to read *teorema Katherine, pera q vou ver o nome em inglês*. I realized that the highway where Alaska suffers the accident is the same that Collins and Hassum *esqueci a palavra*. They even saw the truck and the police car. Does that means that they passed before Alaska’s crash?

Well I had a privileged life went on amazing trips went to a good school but one day I came home from the bus , got of them my dads best friend was waiting to pick me uand my brother up and it was strange because our baby sitter was supposed to so we walked home then my mum opens the door and looks like she has a cold or something, there were a lot of people in our living room and I just thought they were there for my mums birthday because it was like two days before , so I went inside and mum said she wanted to talk to me and my brother in her room, I thought I was in trouble but I did remember doing anything wrong so I went down with my brother, and she came out straight with it and told me and my brother that my dad had died, I mean I didn’t think that it was strange that he wasn’t there because he was at work , so then we all burst into tears and I felt even for destroyed seeing my mum cry so I bought up the corage to ask how and she told me it was heart atack , which confused me because he was perfectly healthy and never had any problems before , then 6 moths after I found out it was suede , so that was the short version but if u are interested please please email me thank you I really hope you consider it , it would mean the world to me

Hi John ! I mean Mr. Green, Sir….or can I call you John ? Okay I will call you John if that’s okay with you.

So firstly I’d like to mention that I think that you are an awesome author and if I would actually know you I am pretty sure that you are an awesome person. So from what I’ve heard so far everyone says that you are an awesome person. And everyone can’t be wrong, right? So thanks for being an awesome author and writing incredible books, which just happen to fall into my hands whenever I really need a story like that. AND THANKS for being such an awesome person and having time for your fans!

Secondly, so I am sure you have a lot of things to do with the press tour for paper towns (which was a pretty great book btw and I’m definitely going to watch the movie, I mean Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne duh?!) But I was wondering if you could help me out with something.

I am trying pretty hard to contact as many of my favourite authors to ask them for an interview so I can publish it on my blog (lesenistmagie.blogspot.co.at)(‘Lesen ist Magie’ means: ‘reading is magic’ in german. Not many of them answered me and I was wondering if you had the time for an short interview – answering a couple of questions- for my blog?
It would be pretty amazing if you had, but I would totally understand if you don’t have time for that so.
Have a nice day and greetings to Cara and Nat, can’t wait to see them in cinemas!

yours sincerely,

Probably have thousands of letters or messages of admiration and love and do not be capable of reading this message in years.

And read 4 your books, between(among) this Paper Towns, Looking For are Alaska, The theorem Katherine and Under the same star. My doubts on these four books are giant, go, I find them stupid but, god, need to know that it(he,she) happens(passes) later. Let’s begin with Paper Towns, Margo, a fantastic and enigmatic girl escapes leaving behind several tracks that take Quentin to his(her,your) search. What does happen(pass) after certain time that finds her in the granary? Do they return to find? Do they marry? Does Quentin find another pair(couple)? What does happen(pass) after both kisses that were given if badly I do not remember? I need to know what happens(passes) with them. And with Ruthie, is to Agloe going to be lived by Margo? Does it(he,she) graduate? Seriously I need that you answer to my questions, though it(he,she) should take one year maybe, might you communicate with me for gmail? Millaraymarianoroa@hotmail.com Well, let’s continue with Alaska Young. What does happen(pass) with Thousands? Does it(he) remain alone forever? Is it(he,she) going to be lived by Chip? Does it(he,she) return with Lara? Does chip return with Sara? Probably remain with Lara, though I do not believe it. Well, I have listened that was throwing(launching) Looking For’s supposed movie Alaska, have seen in several pages that you would add to Taylor Swift in the short BUT THAT TAYLOR PLOUGHS DEMONS IN THE MOVIE?

It(He,She) has done many movies where she is a rebellious girl who smokes and drinks, simply beautiful.

Are Colin and Lindsey still united? Does Hassan return with Katrina? What does mean Kafir? Does EOC return for Lindsey? There goes, that you ask. On Down(Under) the same star I do not have questions since I remain clear the history but after a time does Hazel die for his(her,your) cancer? Or does it(he,she) manage to recover? It would be quite, thank you John for these wonderful books, your reading one of Chile says goodbye.

Amélie Conoir July 29, 2015 at 12:25 pm

Dear Mr Green,
I am called Amélie Conoir, I am fourteen years old and I am French. (That explains all my spelling mistakes in this mail) (Sorry)
Like a lot of teenage girls, I have read The Fault In Our Stars, and, in this book, I haven’t found the classical Love Story, where the beautiful and popular girl falls in love with the cool guy, and they live happy during three weeks… No.
To explain my attachment with your book, I would tell you that every time my eyes see its cover, it just happen one second, and I am reading it. (Incredible.) I wanted to know the following of the story, and feel all these emotions : every page is like a wave who spill a flood of feelings. It made me laugh, cry and, mainly reflect.
We can see life in many ways : we can think that life is like a bird, fragile, which has to be lived fully, because we can loose it at any time. We can also think that life is a challenge like a test. There are many ways to see life, but mine is the following way : life is like a Russian roulette. We can be lucky, or not. But what we have to know is that luck changes and, like Hazel, we can be under a flood of woe, it will always be something to get us out this sadness, if we accept to take its hand.
I imagine that you receive every day enough mails to blow your mailbox. But I only wish your eyes linger just a few seconds on the text I am writing.
Thank you for writing The Fault In Our Stars, and for offering to millions of readers an infinity of feelings. And this infinity is, like Peter Van Houten should say, larger than other.
Thank you for reading,
Amélie Conoir

Dearest John,

I’ve got all this questions and comments about your books as any other fan, but I know the chances of you reading this are 1 in a million, and the chances of you answering me are even farther away, so let’s not waste your most precious time…
The real question is: where did you get your Holden Caulfield’s hunting hat?! Boy, it’s killing me! I can’t find it anywhere.
Maybe it would be helpful to say that I’m Mexican (and living in Mexico) so I might not be able to go to some sort of underground hat-shop in Indianapolis… But there’s shopping online and all, so, well… I just want to know.
Just another quick one: do you think that if I buy a hunting hat on Ebay I could get lice?

Love you,
Paulina
