April 2017 Pioneer Bookshop Book Club Choice

The bookclub readers will meet at 7pm on Thursday, April 6 to discuss Margot Lee Shetterly's Hidden Figures.    This book is a current best seller and was made into a major motion picture.   A remarkable true story.  These women were called computers!  This is long before we called those things on our desks computers.  They were a group of exceptionally talented African American women who were called into service during the labor shortages of WWII.  This book  follows the lives of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson and Christine Darden for nearly three decades as they participated in some of NASA's greatest successes with their math wizz minds.
