Thanks to the voting efforts of more than 185,000 fans, The Fault in Our Stars author John Green and the stars of the upcoming film version — Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort and Nat Wolff (i.e., Hazel Grace Lancaster, Augustus Waters and Isaac) — will appear 6:30 p.m. Thursday at a red-carpet event for the film at War Memorial Auditorium.
Starting at 7 p.m., they'll host a sneak peek at 10 minutes of footage from the movie (which comes out June 6) and conduct a Q&A afterward. Nashville's one of four cities getting a visit from the entourage as part of a contest sponsored by 20th Century Fox and Tumblr.
The event is free, but you have to download a ticket (if any remain available) at WMArocks.com. Fans will be admitted on a first-come-first-served basis, and the venue will no doubt fill up quickly. You can start lining up 5 p.m. Thursday in the courtyard outside War Memorial. We suggest you bring Kleenex and earplugs.
