Our next book for Somerville Reads, our annual community one town/one book series of events, is the critically acclaimed best seller
 The Martian
"A ridiculously entertaining sci-fi novel, set in the near future when manned missions to Mars have begun. Astronaut Mark Watney is marooned on Mars when his crewmates mistakenly believe that he has been killed during a hurried emergency departure from the planet."

"Please note that this book contains language that may not be suitable for younger readers.

A movie of the book will be released in October, with our neighbor Matt Damon as the castaway astronaut.
