First Wednesday Book Discussion: One Read Runner-Up

Wednesday, October 4 › Noon-1 p.m.

Callaway County Public Library

Join us to discuss "Hidden Figures" by Margot Lee Shetterly. This is the little-known true story of a small contingent of African-American women who were the "human computers" that helped launch rockets and men into space. In the still highly-segregated post-World War II South, these extraordinary math whizzes got a rare chance to fully utilize their skills at the Virginia aeronautical testing lab that was the precursor to NASA. This book was the runner-up title for this year's One Read community reading program.

Registration: Not required.
