Watch a video interview with John Green.

John Green attended a boarding school not unlike Alaska's Culver Creek. After graduating from college in 2000, he worked as a chaplain at a children's hospital. John's experiences with patients and their families during intense crises solidified his desire to write for teens about the challenge of confronting loss.

John worked for Booklist, a journal of book reviews and was also a commentator for National Public Radios national afternoon newsmagazine, All Things Considered, and Chicago's NPR affiliate, WBEZ.
