Calling All Fans of The Fault in Our Stars

Do you love all things John Green?
 If yes, then Penguin UK are wanting to mobilise and inspire the legions of young fans for John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars to help raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust.

On 26th June, with John Green’s support, Penguin are inviting all UK and Ireland fans of the book to unite in a ‘Night of Infinities’ and organise their own fundraising sleepovers inspired by the book.

A ‘Night of Infinities’ event pack is now available to download from www.nightofinfinities.co.uk.

Penguin and Teenage Cancer Trust hope that the novel’s fan base will be inspired to help raise money for the many young people like Hazel and Gus. Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for young people with cancer aged between 13 and 24.

John Green is fully supportive and comments: "I worked as a student chaplain at a children's hospital about 15 years ago for five months. During that time I started wanting to write about the young people I had met there… It just took a long while for that book to become The Fault in Our Stars. From that experience, I understand the importance of charities such as Teenage Cancer Trust and the work they do in bringing young people together and helping them get the best possible care in the best possible environment. I would be delighted if fans of my book were able to translate that into tangible support for the charity.”
