David Levithan, author of such young adult classics as Boy Meets Boy, and John Green, author, most recently, of the New York Times best-selling The Fault in Our Stars, bring some serious star power to this episode of Symphony Space’s Thalia Kids' Book Club. Co-authors Levithan and Green are buoyant and highly comedic literary guests, reading from and answering questions about their young adult novel Will Grayson, Will Grayson. Enthusiastic audience interaction makes this audio event especially appealing, and Levithan and Green are engaging and frank speakers, sharing insights about their lives and writing with great grace and passion.
Green (An Abundance of Katherines) and Levithan (Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, Executive Editorial Director at Scholastic) discuss their collaborative novel with teens ages 14 and up. In the book, they alternate chapters, each lending his own unique voice to two teens named Will Grayson, one of them gay and one of them straight. The event includes a discussion with the audience.
