Virtual Book Club

April 23, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join the Virginia Club of New York for our first virtual book club! We’ll discuss New York Times bestseller Hidden Figures by UVA grad Margot Lee Shetterly (COMM ’91). Hidden Figures tells the true story of the black female mathematicians at NASA whose calculations helped fuel some of America’s greatest achievements in space. The book was later made into an award-winning film starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monae.

The e-book is available for free 14-day checkout from the New York Public Library. If you are able, we encourage you to consider purchasing this book from a local independent bookstore offering shipping or curbside pickup. You can find a list of such bookstore in New York here.

Registrants will receive a Zoom link for the discussion in their confirmation email.

Please note that space is limited for this digital event. RSVP here
