John Green

Biography

Date of Birth: 24 August 1977

Indianapolis-born bestselling author John Green has come a long way since writing his first novel for young adults, Looking for Alaska, in 2005. His vlog brothers Youtube channel, started with his brother Hank Green, has over 1,400,000 subscribers, all tuning in to popular vlog posts like Giraffe Love and Other Questions ANSWERED and 50 Jokes (Yes...actually 50 jokes). The videos, often hyper-intelligent whilst addressing young-adult topics, spawned the Nerdfighter movement, whose central aim is to "fight for intellectualism and to decrease the overall worldwide level of suck." Awesome.
