Banned Books Week: Wednesday

Okay, so the last post was all dramatic and stuff. This one's mostly just fun. John Green, the author who's the focus of our department's longest-running author crush (no offense to Sherman, Markus, Scott, Cory, etc. etc. etc.) is a video blogger as well as a young adult author. This gave him a great forum in January of 2008, when his first novel—the fantastic, beloved, and award-winning Looking for Alaska—was challenged at Depew High School in New York. He made the following video, and as he is articulate, funny, smart, and the author, I really have nothing to add. Enjoy.

    The part about "Waiting for Godot" made me laugh. He seems cute and smart and this video really made me want to read his book!

  3. You should, Anonymous! His books are great. (And so are his video blogs, which you can find much much more of at his website.)
