By Laura Kemp | May 21 2021 | Adult


Green kicked off pub day with a charming appearance on CBS This Morningwhere the hosts enthusiastically rated The Anthropocene Reviewed 5 stars, and the book has received glowing reviews from the likes of People (calling it “The perfect book for right now”), NPR.orgThe San Francisco ChronicleThe AV Club and more. Interviews and features of John have appeared in USA TodayThe Boston GlobeShondaland, and more, and Green has been on a slew of regional NPR programs with more to come.

Aside from the fantastic press, the outpouring of support and excitement from readers has been really special. Fans created a site where readers around the world can drop a pin in their city and share a photo of their copy of the book; at Green’s book events, fans have been participating in live review drafting (example here); and perhaps John’s biggest fan, his brother Hank, has been taking to TikTok with hilarious (and widely viewed) videos about the book.

Over the next few weeks John will continue his press run with appearances on PBS’ Amanpour & Co, WorkLife with Adam Grant, Terrible, Thanks for Asking, and interviews in Shelf Awareness,, the Morning Brew, and more.
