The Cotuit Library Sci-Fi Book Club is meeting once again for some stellar book discussing. This month we will be reading All Systems Red by Martha Wells, the first novella in The Murderbot Diaries. Copies will be available for checkout at the library and in ebook form on Libby leading up to the event.

Check out this sinopsis of All Systems Red and then come to the library and grab your copy:

“In a corporate-dominated spacefaring future, planetary missions must be approved and supplied by the Company. Exploratory teams are accompanied by Company-supplied security androids, for their own safety.

“But in a society where contracts are awarded to the lowest bidder, safety isn’t a primary concern.

“On a distant planet, a team of scientists are conducting surface tests, shadowed by their Company-supplied ‘droid ― a self-aware SecUnit that has hacked its own governor module, and refers to itself (though never out loud) as “Murderbot.” Scornful of humans, all it really wants is to be left alone long enough to figure out who it is.

“But when a neighboring mission goes dark, it’s up to the scientists and their Murderbot to get to the truth.”

This program is free but please register at cotuitlibrary.org/events or contact the Library.
