EVENT IS SOLD OUT! However you can still preorder Turtles All the Way Down, out October 10th! Village Books and Western Washington University Libraries are thrilled to announce that Bellingham will be a stop on internationally best-selling author John Green’s tour in support of his highly-anticipated young adult novel, Turtles All the Way Down! It has been nearly six years since the release of The Fault in Our Stars which was later made into a blockbuster movie starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort.
ABOUT THE BOOK: Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis. Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts. In his long-awaited return, John Green, the acclaimed, award-winning author of Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars, shares Aza’s story with shattering, unflinching clarity in this brilliant novel of love, resilience, and the power of lifelong friendship.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: 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 Printz Honor, 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.
