Books and Pizza Meet in New Library Book Club
Date(s): 8/10/2015, 9/14/2015, 10/12/2015, 11/9/2015, 12/14/2015
Beginning August 10, The second Monday of each month
Pizza Central in Evans
Evans, GA — Are you ready for a new kind of book club? Columbia County Library staff will host the Pub Fiction book club at Pizza Central in Evans. The group will meet the second Monday of each month, beginning August 10. The first book selection is The Martian by Andy Weir.
“We’ve had suggestions from patrons to do more to appeal to young professionals who aren’t available during normal library hours,” said library reference manager Natalie Gibson. “This book club will be a relaxed meet-up where people can eat some pizza, have a drink, and talk about books that the group will choose.”
“We picked The Martian as the first book because it has mass appeal, and the movie version will be released in October,” said Gibson.
The Martian follows astronaut Mark Watney after a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive--and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old 'human error' are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills--and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit--he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next.
