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 200 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 1.2 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.

Mr. Green,
After reading The Fault in Our Stars, and seeing the quote “If people were rain, i was drizzle and she was a hurricane”, i took it upon myself to read Looking for Alaska. I read the book in 2 days (no surprise) and began to think about it more and more. The thought of Pudges “Great Perhaps” couldn’t leave my mind. I understand that his labyrinth was forgiveness, and that he forgave everybody regarding the death of Alaska. What I am not sure of is if his great perhaps was meeting Alaska herself, or him forgiving her for dying.
I know the second half is unfolding Alaska’s death, whether it be suicide, or just plain drunk. Why would you create her labyrinth “Straight and Fast”, then have her run into a car head on and say it was not suicide? I’m very frustrated because I can’t decide what to believe. The character I love could not have killed herself in my brain, i just simply do not want to think of her that way. But to me it just seems apparent that she did and that she finally decided she had reached the end of her maze and she was done here. I guess my over all question is, Was Alaska’s death the only way Pudge could have found his Great Perhaps at Culver Creek?
Im sure you get millions of these a day, I am just looking for an answer behind the “Great Perhaps”.

Hello Mr. Green!

I just saw a pic of you dining at Santorini’s… I have to be honest–that is th beat Greek food you will ever eat. I know this because Jeanette & Taki are my cousins (by marriage). I would eat at Santorini’s every week if possible! But more importantly, I teach 6th grade Reading, Writing, and Social Studies at a small school in Mt. Vernon (Fortville). If I could get you to come and visit us, do you know how cool I would be? Do you know how much street cred I could claim?! If you want to get in on this, give me a holler. My school would FLIP to have you! Warmest Regards, Brooke Anderson
