Mouse is going into Glasgow tomorrow to see the ubiquitous John Green on his tour for The Fault in Our Stars – so are several of the kids I work with. He has, apparently, sold out the Glasgow Concert Hall. It’s not a small cosy space; it’s a fairly massive auditorium.
This is amazing.
I know about all the internet stuff, and the nerdfighter bits, and the whole being awesome thing… but fundamentally, this is an author who writes books that young people love and in return they are treating him like a rock star. How good is that?
(I’ve read them too, and I loved them, although I’m definitely not a young person)
