LA Times Festival of Books presents the TURTLES ALL THE WAY DOWN book tour

Join #1 bestselling author John Green and special guest Hank Green on tour in support of John’s new novel, TURTLES ALL THE WAY DOWN. In this multimedia event, the brothers will talk about John’s latest book, answer audience questions, perform live music, and more. All tickets include an autographed copy of TURTLES ALL THE WAY DOWN.

John Green is the award-winning, #1 bestselling author of Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns, Will Grayson, Will Grayson (with David Levithan), and The Fault in Our Stars. His many accolades include the Printz Medal, a PrintzHonor, and the Edgar Award. John has twice been a finalist for the LA Times Book Prize and was selected by TIME magazine as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World. With his brother, Hank, John is one half of the Vlogbrothers (youtube.com/vlogbrothers) and co-created the online educational series CrashCourse (youtube.com/crashcourse). You can join the millions who follow him on Twitter @johngreen and Instagram @johngreenwritesbooks or visit him online at johngreenbooks.com. John lives with his family in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Hank Green started making YouTube videos with his brother, John, in 2007. He and John still make videos all over YouTube, including educational channels Crash Course and SciShow. Somewhere along the way, Hank decided he needed to spend more time talking to his brother, so they began Dear Hank & John, a comedy podcast about death. While they regularly argue about the time it will take to get humans on Mars, Hank is very proud of his brother and all he’s accomplished. Hank very strongly believes that Peanut M&Ms are the best M&Ms /and/ the best peanuts.
