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