Your annual reminder that Dr. King believed in guaranteed universal basic income that gave all people a dignified life, guaranteed housing for all, guaranteed access to a high quality education, & said that “no one should be forced to live in poverty while others live in luxury.”

The last time Sierra Leone's national team played in a major tournament, 22-year-old goalkeeper Mohamed Kamara wasn't yet born. Watch his historic performance and see what it means--for Kamara and for his country. #TeamSierraLeone 🇸🇱🇸�…WlLeyU

Huge congrats to Sierra Leone national hero Mohamed Kamara, who just made a ridiculous number of saves to secure a point in Sierra Leone's first game in a major tournament since 1996.…

Hi. The signed edition of The Anthropocene Reviewed book is now out of stock in most places (there may still be some at your local bookstore). You can, however, get extremely rare and collectible UNSIGNED hardcovers at bookshop (and soon everywhere):…
The Fault in Our Stars was published ten years ago today. What a weird decade. Thanks to all who've read it, and all who will. I am overwhelmed with gratitude.
(I have the flu. It's not covid. It's the flu! Like some kind of 2019 person??? Maybe it is because of the flu that I feel so nostalgic.)
Hank just made our 2,000th vlogbrothers video. Two thousand videos. Incredible. I can't believe we still get to do this. I love Hank so much, and I love making stuff with him so much.
Both maternal and child mortality are falling. But the crisis is ongoing. The region needs better primary healthcare and a better teaching hospital to train future generations of Sierra Leonean healthcare workers. Help us fund that next step at
In 2019, 1 in 17 women could expect to die in pregnancy or childbirth in Sierra Leone. @PIH, working with the Ministry of Health, had a plan to radically reduce maternal mortality through a $25,000,000 investment in maternal and child care. It's happening.…
Huge news today from @johngreen: with @pihsierraleone, we're expanding the MCOE & investing in Kayima Community Health Center, the clinic serving Kono's largest chiefdom! Special thanks to John, @hankgreen and everyone for making this possible! Learn

Also, our airport is incredible. Plus, all the people who think of the Midwest as "Flyover Country" are, sort of by definition, not here. And that's nice.
I won't apologize for loving Indianapolis. We have the country's largest urban park. Great walking paths & restaurants. Lovely people. Several walkable neighborhoods. AND we have @CrownHillCem, the final resting place of more U.S. Vice Presidents than any other location on Earth.
I've made it a tradition to listen to this episode of The Anthropocene Reviewed around this time every year. It's beautiful, kind of devastating, but also life-affirming. Check it out if you're in the mood.…

It's so weird that we're mammals. Like, our thinking parts are made out of meat. My consciousness has a skeleton. That's so gross. Thanks for coming to my TED Talk.

American Scientist recommends The Anthropocene Reviewed for the reader in your life "haunted by the dimming of human prospects." (I promise the book is not merely haunted by the dimming of human prospects. It is also haunted by many other dimmings.)…

Oh, and if you can't get one at a bookstore, dftba has a few signed copy bundled with the (beautiful!) Anthropocene Reviewed vinyl album.… (Won't arrive before Xmas, though!)…
Hi. Yes, I am aware that The Anthropocene Reviewed book is currently backordered at many ecommerce sites, including bookshop. Folks at PRH are working to solve this. In the meantime, your local bookstore will very likely have copies, including possibly autographed ones.
I'm really grateful it's still in print. Thanks for keeping it around.
In 20 days, The Fault in Our Stars will be ten years old.
Y'all, @VancityReynolds cohosts the new episode of @dearhankandjohn. Also, he gives properly good advice.

Lastly: Throughout (gestures broadly), I've read and reread Rosemary Horrox's The Black Death, which contains devastating first person accounts of the 14th century plague pandemic. Seeing how we've historically responded to infectious disease has helped me understand this time.
I also read a lot of mysteries this year. I love every book that @Connellybooks writes. And I loved rereading Walter Moseley books, going back to the very beginning of the Easy Rawlins series. Also was introduced to Tana French's books by a bookseller, and I LOVE THEM.
Favorite novel of the year? Tough choice for me, but maybe The Wrong End of the Telescope by @rabihalameddine, which was devastating and wondrous. Nobody writes like Rabih. Nobody gets anywhere close.
Astrophysics! I cannot choose between two books I LOVED: The End of Everything by @AstroKatie, and The Disordered Cosmos by @IBJIYONGI. I always thought I was "not a science person," but these books introduced me to the universe and helped me see that we are ALL science people.
I am still reeling (oh god pardon the pun) from @lmillernpr's book Why Fish Don't Exist. If, like me, you love Radiolab or Invisibilia, you have to read this book. It really reshaped my understanding of the history of science.
Memoir: Has to be Somebody's Daughter by @iSmashFizzle. I've given this as a gift to so many people, and they've all responded to it deeply. It's a bit cliche to call a memoir unflinching, but this one actually DOESN'T FLINCH. It's an astonishing, brilliant, gutwrenching book.
It's a rigorous historical work that's also deeply personal, and it's written with the clarity and precision you'd expect from a poet. Speaking of poetry, my favorite poetry read of the year was Deaf Republic by @ilya_poet. My God. I haven't stopped thinking about it.
Here are some of my favorite book of 2021, in case you're looking for a great read (or a great gift). My favorite history book this year was How the Word Is Passed by @ClintSmithIII, which explores how sites associated with slavery grapple (or don't) with that history.
Well, this is lovely. The Anthropocene Reviewed on a billboard in NYC after winning the Goodreads Choice Award for Nonfiction...

Why did I say Indiana literary WORLD? When it is clearly not a world? I guess I didn't want to say SCENE. I should've looked for a better word. I am full of regrets. But not as full of regrets as Purdue will be if they don't walk this back. Thanks for coming to my TED talk.
Purdue's creative writing program has brilliant professors and students, and is a shining light in the Indiana literary world. It's so devastating to see the erosion of funding for such an important program. I hope you'll join me in signing the petition.…
