Celebrate the life of Esther Earl, the teenage girl who inspired legions of friends and fans, and to whom John Green’s award-winning novel, The Fault in Our Stars, is dedicated. Esther passed away from cancer in 2010 at the age of sixteen, but left behind a legacy of love, giving, and hope. With This Star Won’t Go Out: The Life and Words of Esther Grace Earl, her writings have been compiled along with photographs, essays, sketches, and an introduction by John Green. The Earl family will be honoring Esther’s life and releasing her new book with an awesome, multimedia event featuring presentations by family and friends, as well as performances by Wizard Rock musical guests (to be announced). This is the only book event the Earls will be doing so don’t miss it!

This is a ticketed event. Tickets are $25 and include a copy of This Star Won’t Go Out. Ticketholders have the option of purchasing one additional guest ticket for $5. A portion of each ticket will go to the This Star Won’t Go Out foundation.

Tickets can be purchased online (, over the phone at 781-431-1160, or in the store.


This Star Won’t Go Out is a non-profit foundation serving families with children diagnosed with life-threatening cancer. TSWGO’s goal is to help families through financial gifts given with no strings attached. These gifts can be used for medical expenses, items needed by the child with cancer, or personal expenses due to the financial strain of caring for a child with cancer.

TSWGO was established in memory of 16-year old Esther Earl, an avid Nerdfighter and passionate Harry Potter fan. Her online friends and causes met many of the social and emotional needs in her life, hampered as she was by her progressing thyroid cancer. Yet Esther lived life fully, getting involved in social justice issues, loving her friends, her family, and cats, and always remembering to be awesome.
