Bookshop Santa Cruz is thrilled to welcome Andy Weir, bestselling author of The Martian, as he returns with an irresistible new near-future thriller––a heist story set on the moon, Artemis. Weir will be in conversation with Francis Nimmo, UCSC Professor of Earth & Planetary Sciences. 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.
TICKET PACKAGES: $29.43, includes TWO TICKETS to the event at Santa Cruz High School and one copy of Artemis.

Everything you could hope for in a follow-up to The Martian: another smart, fun, fast-paced adventure that you won’t be able to put down.” – Ernest Cline, New York Times bestselling author of Ready Player One
