Meg Howrey

Author of The Wanderers

Friday, March 17th at 7pm

The Wanderers is about three astronauts, led by a brilliant space pioneer Helen Kane, as they prepare for a trip to Mars through a simulation so realistic the line between what’s real and unreal become blurry, forcing the group to face the challenges of their voyage and the conflicts they face within themselves. It’s a novel about those who decide to take extraordinary risks to travel into space as well as those they leave behind, a daughter, son, lover, spouse, who grapple feelings of immense pride with pain, abandonment, anxiety, constant wondering. It’s a story about exploration and isolation, unchartered discovery on a grand scale and inner conflict at the most human, vulnerable level.
