Famed author of ‘The Martian’ will be in Mission Viejo July 18

Andy Weir

Meet New York Times bestselling author Andy Weir to learn of his latest escapade on the moon with “Artemis” at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, July 18 at the Norman Murray Community Center, 24932 Veterans Way.  This $18.50 ticketed program includes the book plus two admissions.

Brimming with Andy’s trademark charm, “Artemis” is a science-fiction thrill ride set in the first inhabited city on the moon in the 2080s. This fantastic read is sure to find a home alongside “The Martian” as a new classic in the genre.

Andy worked as a software engineer until the success of his first published novel allowed him to live out his dream of writing full time. He is a lifelong space nerd and devoted hobbyist of subjects like relativistic physics, orbital mechanics and the history of manned spaceflight. 

One ticket (which includes a hard copy or trade paperback) will admit two patrons to the book discussion that is followed by a Q & A, book signing and photo opportunity. Books will be signed in the order of the website purchase. For more information, call 949-470-8488 or purchase tickets online today.

The Friends of the Library will host a wine bar beginning at 6:15 p.m., and Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore will sell Andy Weir’s books on site.

Bikeway Survey

The City of Mission Viejo is developing a Bikeway Master Plan to improve the cycling experience in our community and encourage more people to enjoy riding their bicycles. We are currently in the process of gathering information to understand current cycling trends and preferences in the City.

As part of this effort, beginning on November 8th and running through December 7th, we are seeking resident feedback via a short, online survey. The survey will be available on our website, in our newsletter, and via our social media sites. 

The online survey is available at https://tinyurl.com/missionviejobike, and those who participate will qualify for a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card.
