The February meeting of Northwest Mississippi Community College’s Reading Roundtable, made possible with funds from Sycamore Bank, will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 27 at 2 p.m., in the R.C. Pugh Library on the Senatobia campus. Leading this month’s discussion will be Jennifer Yarborough, Northwest counselor.
Starting in World War II and moving through to the Cold War, the Civil Rights Movement and the Space Race, Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly follows the interwoven accounts of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson and Christine Darden, four African-American women who participated in some of NASA’s greatest successes. It chronicles their careers over nearly three decades in which they faced challenges, forged alliances, and used their intellect to change their own lives, and their country’s futures.
The purpose of the program is to provide a forum to read and discuss a variety of books during the course of every semester. Meetings are held on the last Tuesday of each month.
Participants must fill out a registration form, and those wishing to purchase a copy of the book being discussed may do so for $5. Personal or library copies may also be used.
