Last night I went to Politics & Prose, an awesome indie bookstore in DC. The lower level was utterly packed with teens there to hear John Green and David Levithan read from their new, collaboratively written novel, Will Grayson, Will Grayson. It was breathtaking to be among such a great group of teens who were just genuinely excited about these guys and their books. It was infectious. There was this one guy (featured in one of the pix) who was interviewing people for his YouTube channel and he would begin with “This person basically wins at life because…” and he would find one really cool thing about that person.
And this was typical for the kind of person who was there. A whole community of positive, weirdness-loving, nerds.
John and David have started something truly awesome. Congrats, guys!
