SOLD OUT! Hank Green will Introduce his Debut Hardcover Novel ~ An Absolutely Remarkable Thing, with Special Guest John Green!

SOLD OUT!  EVENT OVERVIEW:  Hank Green will Introduce his Debut Hardcover Novel An Absolutely Remarkable Thing alongside Special Guest John Green, New York Times Bestselling Author.  This Multimedia experience will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

ABOUT THE NOVEL:  In his much-anticipated Debut Hardcover Novel, Hank Green, Co-Creator of Crash Course, Vlogbrothers, and SciShow, spins a sweeping, cinematic tale about a young woman who becomes an overnight celebrity before realizing she's part of something bigger, and stranger, than anyone could have possibly imagined.

April May is a recent art school graduate working long hours at a Manhattan-based startup.  Coming home from work one day at 3:00 AM, April stumbles across something extraordinary: a giant sculpture that looks like a ten-foot-tall Transformer wearing a suit of samurai armor.  Delighted, April and her friend Andy film a video with it, dubbing the sculpture “Carl.”  The next day, April wakes up to a viral video and a new life.  News quickly spreads that there are Carls in dozens of cities around the world—from Beijing to Buenos Aires—and April, as their first documentarian, finds herself at the center of an intense international media spotlight. 

A thoroughly original debut, An Absolutely Remarkable Thing grapples with big themes, including how the social internet is changing fame, rhetoric, and radicalization; how our culture deals with fear and uncertainty; and how vilification and adoration spring from the same dehumanization that follows a life in the public eye.  Says Hank, “It's a story I've wanted to tell for a long time that was seeded by a lot of my personal experiences, but it's April's story, and it's been a pleasure watching her live her absolutely remarkable life.”
