On Building Community

The other night on my way home from class a colleague and I were discussing creating community, and how cool the fact that so many YA authors have an online presence is. This came from a conversation about how I won a book from. Neal Shusterman and a contest he posted on his Facebook page. We went from there to talking about Nerdfighteria, a community created by vlogbrothers Hank and John Green.

I'm proud to say that I've recruited some students and turned them into Nerdfighters. To show his loyalty, he tattooed himself with calligraphy pen. I thought I'd share it with you because I thought it was particularly awesome.
