Expert Pick: “Hidden Figures” by Margot Lee Shetterly
Review Jordan Weinmann
This amazing book about black women working at NASA opened my eyes to so many things. These women worked alongside engineers and astronauts to calculate how to project rockets and spaceships into space, all while living in the Jim Crow south. Be sure to read this book before you see the movie this January starting Taraji P. Henson and Octavia Spencer.
