Read the book and attend in person at the Michigan Road Branch or attend online from your home computer! We chose the book "The Martian" by Andy Weir to discuss in July. Registration is required.

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 the 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?

Registration is required. We need your email in order to send you a meeting link. 

If you would like to receive a copy of our book club materials but have not attended a meeting, visit the Michigan Road Branch or check out a copy from our collection!

The Martian by Andy Weir is available as a print book, an e-book, an audiobook CD, and as a Book Club Kit in The Library's Collection. 

Happy Reading!

About the branch

This is not a real library branch - this is the "location" for our events that occur online. Online events that take place on Zoom should all involve registration and a link will be emailed to participants. Other online events may occur on YouTube or Facebook, and will not require registration.
