The author of the instant classic, The Martian, is back with a novel that will have you on the edge of your seat! Celebrate the release of the most-anticipated book of the year. 

Andy Weir presents: Artemis

Artemis is the first only city on the moon. If you aren't a tourist or an eccentric billionaire, life in this fledgling new territory is tough. Providence and imperial dreams have been nickel-and-dimed from those who have called the moon their home. That's why Jazz doesn't rely on her day-job. She moonlights, instead, as a smuggler, and gets along okay with small-time contraband that is, until the chance to commit the perfect crime presents itself. 

Join Kepler's Literary Foundation for the literary event of the year!

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.

Kara Platoni is a science journalist. She teaches UC-Berkeley and has interviewed notable authors such as Yuval Noah Harari, Steven Johnson, and more for the Kepler's Literary Foundation.
