author photoThe Friends of Athens-Clarke County Library invite you to a virtual evening with author Andrew Mack on Monday, March 22, 2021 at 7 p.m.

Mack will discuss his latest book, BELINEA: Season One - The Mission. This sci-fi odyssey is a political thriller told in the styling of a television screenplay. Five eight episode seasons lay out the story of the Belineans on Earth, and how humans assert themselves in the galaxy. book cover

After a pandemic decimates the population, Earth is saved by a galactic species, the Belineans. As the leaders of a galactic Council, the Belineans exert their power with an advanced, expensive military. One human, a junior ambassador to the Council, is determined to gain more independence for Earth. He pleads his case, but mysterious groups are determined to stop him from speaking.

Andrew Mack is a twenty year plus hospitality veteran that has seen and heard every story imaginable. Belinea is a screenplay made for television, the idea being five seasons of eight to ten episodes. The story has been rattling around in his brain for over thirty years.
