Don’t Miss This!

I’d be excited if I were you…
Excited because one the best YA writers of our times is coming to speak in Pittsburgh this week.   Pittsburgh Arts and Lectures has invited John Green, YA novelist and Vlogbrother to speak at the Carnegie Lecture Hall in Oakland.
Tickets are still available here.

I like all Green’s books each in their way.  I usually like their realistic characters, and geeky humor best.  Green’s talk on Friday night will likely focus on his newest book Paper Towns.

But if you haven’t before now, you owe it to yourself to backtrack to his earlier books, particularly his first novel, Looking for Alaska.

I’m not the only one who thinks it’s awesome.  It won the most prestigious award for YA literature back in 2006. Check out the Vlogbrother’s channel on YouTube to hear a recent post about writing Looking For Alaska, then winning the Printz Award.

Once you’ve blazed through all of John Green’s awesome books, why not check out a few other Printz Award winners?

  1. Don’t forget “Will Grayson, Will Grayson”, another great book with some hilarious moments.
