Book Club: The Martian

It’s time for another round of the Young Adult Cancer Book Club!
This next book club pick is The Martian, by Andy Weir.  Here at Cactus Cancer Society, we’re really excited to read this book together!
The books are packed and ready to go,  and that means that it’s time for you to sign up to receive one of the free books that we send out to young adult cancer patients and survivors in exchange for sharing your commentary on one of the book’s chapters. We’ll be sending the books out by the end of August. The reading assignments (for what chapter we’d love your commentary on) will go out then too, and we’ll start sharing your commentary in early September.
Once this round of book club officially starts, there are several ways for you to be involved in the book club:
  • Read the book along with us and check out the Young Adult Voices blog each Friday, starting September 9th for the next book chapter’s installment!
  • If you’d like to contribute your comments about a chapter, simply comment at the bottom of that chapter’s blog post!
  • Once we’re done reading the book, join us for a book club discussion! We’ll announce the date later, so keep an eye out!
Happy reading!!
