Project Hail Mary

by Milt Lum, Staff Writer

Andy Weir’s first novel, The Martian, found success among sci-fi fans when first published in 2011. He attracted a larger audience with the film adaption starring Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain in 2015. Ten years later, Weir’s second novel, Project Hail Mary, has found a larger receptive audience.

Martha’s Book group, not usually inclined toward sci-fi novels, will be discussing Project Hail Mary as its book selection for May. All are welcome to share their views as the group explores a new genre in expanding their reading interests. Sci-fi enthusiasts, please join us and help us understand your passion. All are welcome on Tuesday at 4 p.m. on the afternoon on May 9 at the Bay Club. For more information and a list of upcoming book selections, contact Sarah Schuch at bookclub|||plvoice|||org|||Need Info.

Book group selection for June will be John Green’s Turtles All the Way Down.
