  • The Sirens of Mars, Sarah Stewart Johnson
    Crown, 9781101904817, July 7, 2020 (Non-Fiction)

    Sirens of Mars is a deeply personal memoir about the search for signs of life on Mars. Despite the attention to scientific detail, this is an easily readable book. Johnson ultimately shows us how the story of Mars is also a story about Earth. A must-read for anyone with an interest in the red planet, and anyone who is keen to hear more voices from women in science.”

    Lindsey Bartlett, formerly of Ellen Plumb’s City Bookstore (Emporia, KS)

    “This book is a delight. The author takes us through the whole history of humanity’s fascination with Mars, from one immensely detailed and complicated theory about its landscape and inhabitants to the next. The stories surrounding astronomers’ postulations through the centuries are enormously entertaining, and when she gets to modern exploration, she gives a clear and fascinating explanation of the planetary science behind our recent, more rational searches for water and life.”

    Mary Williams, Skylight Books (Los Angeles, CA)
