Hidden Figures Young Readers' Edition

Amazon.com Rating:

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. This book brings to life the stories of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Christine Darden, four African-American women who lived through the civil rights era, the Space Race, the Cold War, and the movement for gender equality, and whose work forever changed the face of NASA and the country.

New York Times bestselling author Margot Lee Shetterly's book is now available in a new edition perfect for young readers. Their story is also soon to be a major motion picture.

To learn more about the original book for older teen and adult readers, check out Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians who Helped Win the Space Race.
