Get our eBook Pick: Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly

Hidden Figures available as eBookOur eBook pick for spring is Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly. Before John Glenn orbited the earth, or Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of dedicated female mathematicians known as “human computers” used pencils, slide rules, and adding machines to calculate the numbers that would launch rockets, and astronauts into space.
 
Starting with World War II and moving through the Cold War and the Civil Rights Movement, this is the story of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Christine Darden whose calculations helped fuel some of America’s greatest achievements in space.
