Live-stream visit features 'Martian' author

Next week’s event featuring best-selling science-fiction author Andy Weir and NASA’s Pascal Lee at Books Inc. in Mountain View is sold-out, but there are plans to stream it live on the internet.

Weir, a Mountain View resident, is slated to discuss his new book, “Artemis,” 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Released Nov. 14, “Artemis,” Weir’s second novel, centers on a young woman living a life of crime on the moon. His debut, “The Martian,” climbed to the top of the best-seller list and was turned into a hit movie. Weir self-published “The Martian” on his website before Crown Publishing purchased and republished it in 2014.

Lee, chairman of the Mars Institute and a scientist at the SETI Institute, is the author of the children’s book “Mission: Mars.”

To watch the live stream, visit Books Inc.’s Facebook page ( at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
