Last year, we were thrilled to be one of only 19 cities across the country to host Hank Green and his brother, John on John's Turtles All the Way Down Tour. Well, Hank was so pleased with the experience that he has chosen Bellingham as a stop on his upcoming tour promoting his novel, An Absolutely Remarkable Thing. In his much-anticipated debut novel, Hank Green—co-creator of Crash Course, Vlogbrothers, and SciShow--spins a sweeping, cinematic tale about a young woman who becomes an overnight celebrity before realizing she's part of something bigger, and stranger, than anyone could have possibly imagined.
 
Hank Green is the CEO of Complexly, a production company that creates educational content, including Crash Course and SciShow, prompting The Washington Post to name him "one of America's most popular science teachers." Complexly's videos have been viewed more than 2 billion times on YouTube. Green co-founded a number of other small businesses, including DFTBA.com, which helps online creators make money by selling cool stuff to their communities; and VidCon, the world's largest conference for the online video community. In 2017, VidCon drew more than 40,000 attendees across three events in Anaheim, Amsterdam, and Australia. Hank and his brother, John, also started the Project for Awesome, which last year raised more than $2 million for charities, including Save the Children and Partners in Health. Hank lives in Montana with his wife, son and cat.
