John Green on NPR

YA author John Green, currently in the midst of a 17-city book tour, was featured on NPR’s Weekend Edition Saturday, talking about his new book, The Fault in Our Stars (Dutton; Brilliance Audio), which debuted at #1 on the NYT children’s chapter books best seller list in its first week on sale.

If you’ve heard Green speak, or watched his frenetic vlog, you’ll wonder who suggested that he slow down for NPR.

During his tour, he appeared at ALA Midwinter and at the Dallas Public Library, as part of a fundraiser for the Freedom to Read Foundation, saying controversial things like  people should pay taxes, teachers should be allowed to teach and librarians to select books.
