HCC Library Book Club -- Summer Series
(This event is free and all members of the community are welcome!)
The next best thing to reading a good book is talking about it! And it is even better with a free baked potato bar and Mars Bars! If you agree, please join us. The lift off book of our summer book club series is The Martian by debut author, Andy Weir. The books are now available for check out at the circulation desk. We will soon have audiobooks as well.
About the Book:
Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him & forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded & completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive-& even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment or plain-old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills-& a relentless, dogged refusal to quit-he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?
