This Friday, John Green will receive the Innovator’s Award at the Los Angeles Times Book Prizes ceremony “for his work building a vibrant community at the intersection of literature, technology and activism.”
The Times interviewed him about those three things, and he says some great stuff about teens. I think you’d enjoy the interview (You can read it here.) A bit about Nerdfighters and decreasing ‘world suck.’ A bit about teen readers and the great number of good books that are being published for you. Fun.
Green will also be at the Los Angeles Times‘ Festival of Books on Saturday. He has a session at 12:30 PM–Conversation with John Green–which is sold out.
