Author John Green dedicated his hit novel, The Fault in Our Stars, to Esther Earl, a bright teen he met and befriended at a Harry Potter fan conference in 2009. But Earl died of thyroid cancer at age 16 in 2010 before Greenâs book came out, and âthe person I most want to read it […]

Hey Nerdfighters! Here some ideas for public transport options:
Framingham/Worcester Commuter Line (Purple Line): Fastest, closest public transportation stop. You will want to get off at the Natick station. This is about a mile and a half from the school. You can then take the Rt. 10 bus to 9/27 Plaza near the Panera. You then walk out of the plaza to N. Main Street, take a right, and Rutledge Road is your next right, just next to the shopping center. The school is up a steep hill, about a 7 min walk.
This is the easiest option for getting to the event, though tickets are around $7.25. You will want to purchase a Zone 4 ticket before boarding the train, if there’s a ticket machine available or use the MBTA app if you have a smartphone, to avoid an extra $3 fee! There are only a couple of trains on Saturday evenings, so timing is key. Here is the schedule for the trains for 2/1 Inbound (going towards Boston), and Outbound (going towards Natick).
Green line (D Line): This is the most flexible public transportation option. You would want to take the D Line all the way out to Riverside (end of the line). Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like any of the regular shuttles to Natick are running on Saturday evenings. There should be a number of cabs idling at the Riverside stop or you can easily call for one to meet you there. The Green Line runs quite often and only costs around $2.50. It is about a 20 min drive to the school from Riverside.
We recommend using this option to get back into Boston, as there are lots of trains and they run until around midnight. You can call a cab to get you at the school or carpool with other Nerdfighters.
