An 'Awesome' Meetup

On Tuesday, January 15, author John Green and his brother, Hank, will present "An Evening of Awesome"--a speaking engagement with musical guests the Mountain Goats--at Carnegie Hall. But the audience won't be limited to those lucky enough to have snagged seats at the vaunted New York City venue. Thanks to a new partnership between Penguin Young Readers Group and social media platform Tumblr, anyone can attend, via livestreaming video and various Tumblr "meetup" events. More than 100 bookstores and libraries are already set to join in.
