The Martian: Science, Fiction and Life

Andy Weir – Thursday, November 15, 2018

Andy Weir, author of the SciFi thriller The Martian, talks about growing up in Livermore, life as a geek and the “silly hobby” that produced a best selling book and hit movie.

Livermore native and author of the best-selling The Martian, Andy Weir, will discuss his life before and after the science fiction novel adapted into a hit movie in 2015, including a lifelong interest in interplanetary travel. A software engineer by training, Weir attaches great importance to technical accuracy and scientific authenticity in his novels. His most recent novel is Artemis, a novel about life in a city on the Moon. Weir’s work has been recognized with the Goodreads Choice Award for Best Science Fiction.
