GAMBIER — “The Fault in Our Stars” writer John Green will give the commencement speech at his alma mater, Kenyon College, on May 21, 2016.

"I am so excited to deliver the commencement address,” he said Tuesday, Nov. 17, in a statement to Kenyon. “It's such an honor to be invited to speak, given that it took me more than four years to graduate from Kenyon. This was not a future I imagined at my own commencement, and I look forward to it."

Green, who graduated in 2000 and needed an extra semester to earn credits he missed when sick with whooping cough, has said that Kenyon helped shape parts of his young adult best-sellers. A double major in English and religious studies, he imagined the college’s Church of the Holy Spirit for the setting for part of “The Fault in Our Stars” and drew on his religion classes for his first novel, “Looking for Alaska.”

His Twitter account, which has 4.7 million followers, included this post in response to the commencement speaker announcement on the @KenyonCollege feed: “Excited/grateful/terrified.”

“Looking for Alaska” is his latest book to be turned into a movie, opening in 2016. Film versions of “The Fault in Our Stars” and another hit novel, “Paper Towns,” came out within the last two years.
