In honor of Oscar month, February’s book is “The Martian,” by Andrew Weir. It’s about an astronaut/biologist/engineer who gets separated from his mission team and is stranded on Mars. By himself. He has to survive several hundred days until the next mission launch, meaning he needs to figure out all kinds of basic things like air, food, water, energy, etc. Yep, it’s pretty daunting. Also adapted into a pretty good film directed by Ridley Scott (yes, THAT Ridley Scott).
We meet in the upstairs lounge of the Midtown Scholar at 2:00 PM, reservations encouraged, but not required (we like to know who’s coming so we know when to get started). Please contact Joe Foner at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP or for questions. Hope to see you there, and happy reading!
