Tour de Nerdfighting!

What started as “Brotherhood 2.0” in 2007–an online project in which siblings John and Hank Green vowed to ditch textual communication for a year and keep in touch via public weekday YouTube videos–has burgeoned into the phenomenon known as Vlogbrothers.

I think we can all agree on this: the Vlogbrothers rule. Their noble mission to decrease the overall level of worldsuck warms our little Figgie heart. Their videos slay us (have you seen the one about what to name your baby?), and John’s books are some of our favorites. They’ve spawned an awesome, philanthropic community of readers and fans, called nerdfighters, who work to raise money for worthy causes and, as everyone knows, are generally made of awesome.

So in honor of John’s latest book, The Fault in Our Starsabout finding love at inconvenient and unexpected times like, oh, while dying–we’re sending you on a little mission. Below, you’ll find all the tour stops for the Tour de Nerdfighting. The events are going to be a blast–John and Hank will be talking, playing live music, answering questions, and signing books. And as if you needed any more motivation to go, we’ll also be giving out our BRAND NEW, SUPER COOL Figment T-shirts to anyone who attends an event and sends us either (a) a photo of John Green or something else that is awesome, or (b) a funny anecdote from the event. (If it’s really good, we’ll even post it on the blog!) Email your photos/anecdotes to admin@figment.com by February 6, 2012 to claim your T-shirt.

  1. If it’s not freaking snowing in Kansas City at this time, and John Green would, therefore, have been able to come, I’m going to hit somebody with a baseball bats. One of those little plastic ones, but it’s still gonna give them a monster of a headache.

    As it is, I have already ordered John’s new book on Amazon and am planning to sit in a chair by my mailbox and harrass the mailman until it comes.

    Until that day…I’m eagerly waiting.
