Geeks, Books & Coffee Book Discussion: Artemis, by Andy Weir
Monday, March 30, 2020 · 6:00 pm · Station Meeting Room 1, First Floor
Register using code HSA274 Artemis by Andy Weir. 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. Registration required. Open to All.

Monday, April 27, 2020 · 6:00 pm · Station Meeting Room 1, First Floor
Register using code HSA274 Invisible Man by H.G. Wells. A gripping and entertaining tale of terror and suspense as well as a potent Faustian allegory of hubris and science run amok, The invisible man endures as one of the signature stories in the literature of science fiction. A brilliant scientist uncovers the secret to invisibility, but his grandiose dreams and the power he unleashes cause him to spiral into intrigue, madness, and murder. The inspiration for countless imitations and film adaptations, The invisible man is as remarkable and relevant today as it was a hundred years ago. As Arthur C. Clarke points out in his Introduction, "The interest of the story ... lies not in its scientific concepts, but in the brilliantly worked out development of the theme of invisibility. If one could be invisible, then what?". Registration required. Open to All.
