OFFSITE & TICKETED: Andy Weir, Artemis

About OFFSITE & TICKETED: Andy Weir, Artemis

Bookshop Santa Cruz is thrilled to welcome bestselling author of The Martian as he returns with an irresistible new near-future thriller––a heist story set on the moon, Artemis. This OFFSITE AND TICKETED book talk and signing event will take place at Santa Cruz High School, 415 Walnut Ave, Santa Cruz.

Jazz Bashara is a criminal.

Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you’re not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you've got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent.

Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down. But pulling off the impossible is just the start of her problems, as she learns that she's stepped square into a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself—and that now, her only chance at survival lies in a gambit even riskier than the first.

ANDY WEIR built a career as a software engineer until the runaway success of his debut novel, The Martian, allowed him to pursue writing full time. He is a lifelong space nerd and a devoted hobbyist of subjects such as relativistic physics, orbital mechanics, and the history of manned spaceflight. He lives in California.
