You’re probably familiar with Hank Green as one half of the Vlogbrothers (with his actual brother and bestselling author, John Green, The Fault in Our Stars, etc.); from his years of teaching people cool things about science via his online educational video platforms Crash Course and SciShow (over 1..6 billion total views); co-founder of VidCon; etc. But this September, Hank took the literary stage for the first time and debuted at #1 on the NYT bestseller list.
In AN ABSOLUTELY REMARKABLE THING, April May is a recent art school graduate working long hours at a Manhattan-based startup. Coming home from work in the early hours of the morning, April stumbles across something extraordinary: a giant sculpture that looks like a ten-foot-tall Transformer wearing a suit of samurai armor. Delighted, April and her friend Andy film a video with it, dubbing the sculpture Carl. The next day, April wakes up to a viral video and a new life. News quickly spreads that there are Carls in dozens of cities around the world-from Beijing to Buenos Aires-and April, as their first documentarian, finds herself at the center of an intense international media spotlight.
