The turtles are going down this week. John Green’s latest novel, Turtles All the Way Down will (finally!) release this week and he’ll be in New York City to jump off his tour. It’s been five years since he last released a book so if you can see him this time around you definitely shouldn’t miss it. Green isn’t the only author in town this week, though. Check out the full list of events below!
