Programmer Andy Weir was unexpectedly thrust into science fiction stardom when his debut novel, The Martian, became a best-selling book turned Oscar-nominated blockbuster movie. With that success, Weir has been living out his dream of writing full time. Now, his second novel envisions the escapades of a smuggler living in Artemis, the first and only city on the Moon.
In this collaboration between Wonderfest and the Commonwealth Club, Weir discusses how he combines his lifelong love of space, science, and humor—along with a healthy dose of research—to create compelling stories for both science and science fiction fans.
