PREMIUM EVENT: ANDY WEIR & THE MARTIAN
OCTOBER 29TH, 2015, 6:30 PM
First a hit novel and soon to be a blockbuster starring Matt Damon, THE MARTIAN has been flying off the shelves ever since it debuted. Join us in welcoming Andy Weir to Los Gatos for a fun evening diving into the world of THE MARTIAN! See the movie when it hits theaters in October and then come see the man behind the story, Andy Weir, in this special appearance with Village House of Books.
THE PLOT: 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 and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive and 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 and 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?
