The Fault in Our Stars author John Green announced this morning that he’ll interview President Barack Obama in a live Google+ Hangout this Thursday.

Details are scarce – for example, we don’t know if Green will be in the same room as Obama or if he’ll be speaking to him digitally (we have an e-mail in to his agent to find out) – but we do know it’s taking place at 4:50 PM ET on February 14. Here is Green’s original tweet about the news:


Update: Green has released a video where he talks about this opportunity as well as meeting people you look up to…

Questions for President Obama (sorry, no questions for Green this time) are being accepted on The White House’s YouTube page. At that same link you’re able to vote up questions to help them be posed to the President.

The “Fireside Chat” is being conducted as part of the President’s State of the Union address, which is being given tonight to the United States Congress. The address is being broadcast live on all major networks beginning at 9 PM ET/6 PM PT.

It’s a long shot, but we hope Green closes his interview with, “Mr. President, don’t forget to be awesome.”

    I really hope he ends it with ‘DFTBA!’

    I totally agree with the last line! I wonder who else is going to be asking questions.

    While he may or may not end the interview that way, I fully expect him to end today’s vlogbrothers video with “President Obama, I’ll see you on Thursday.”

      I was expecting the same thing and we were both sadly disappointed.

    Because it’s a Google+ hangout, I highly doubt they’ll be in the same room (thus defeating the point of the feature) but either way I’m sure it’s going to be awesome.

    Google+? I hope the White House has good Wi-Fi.
