I found out about the event when Alisha (coilylocks.com), a blogger friend who lives in Nashville, offhandedly mentioned it to me. I Googled it and was SO bummed to find that the (free) tickets were all sold out; however, I later was able to get media tickets for Alisha and I, and was very excited!

We were ushered into the "media pen" and able to take pictures of John Green (the author, above, who is also one of my favorite YA authors), and the main cast, including Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort (Divergent), as well as Nat Wolff (Admission).
Slightly before the red carpet, Nat Wolff also performed with his band inside (to the delight of all the teens in attendance!), and then joined his fellow castmates on the carpet.

After the red carpet, we headed inside, and the cast and were able to view ten minutes of footage from the movie (and, unsurprisingly, it looks great!). There was then a Q&A about the book and movie with John Green and the cast, and Ansel Elgort showed off some interesting dance moves, as well.

This was my first "red carpet" event and it was a fantastic night! The Fault in our Stars is in theaters on June 6th, and I highly recommend reading the book - and everything else by John Green - in the meantime.
