The “Nerdfighters Book Club” – a creation of Vlogbrothers creators John and Hank Green – have announced their latest reading pick: our very own Fahrenheit 451! Armed with over 700,000 YouTube subscribers – not to mention John’s 1.2 million Twitter followers – Vlogbrothers are doing a great job bringing their take on history, literature, and more to a predominately young crowd.
FAIFE Book Club participants looking to provide resources to young people should definitely check out John’s first video, Feeling More Alive: Fahrenheit 451’s The Hearth and the Salamander, below. In one day the video has garnered over 100,000 views and 4,000+ comments!
What are your thoughts on Vlogbrothers’ take on Fahrenheit 451 (and their online book club), and how best to use video in online discussions?
