Book and a Movie/“Hidden Figures”
Monday, April 16, 2018
When one thinks of the Space Race during the 1960s certain images immediately pop to mindl. However, one image remains largely absent—that of the African-American female mathematicians, engineers, and supervisors that worked for NASA and contributed considerably to the success of the program. “Hidden Figures”—the non-fiction novel and biographical film adaptation of the same name —finally exposes the truth regarding these pivotal employees to the public at large. So, one huge question remains—which version does a better job of putting all of this out before the public: the book or the movie? You’ll have the opportunity to discuss this oft-debated point if you attend Manitowoc Public Library’s “Book and a Movie” at Lakeshore Cinema on Monday, April 16th, at 7 PM. Watch the movie and then participate in the discussion of the book versus the movie that follows. Books can be checked out prior to the screening at Manitowoc Public Library. Admission is FREE!!!
