Journal Entry 1 by winghyphen8wing from Honolulu, Hawaii USA on Friday, March 09, 2018
This is not an ordinary book: it's a BookCrossing book! BookCrossing books are world travelers - they like to have adventures and make new friends...and every once in a while they even write home to say what they've been doing.

Subtitle: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race

Trade paperback: loved the movie, and would like to know more, so this is definitely on my TBR list. I was hoping it would include some photos of the women, but when I flipped through I didn't see any.

This is an extra copy I picked up at Goodwill. (Larger photo here.)

Here's another copy on my BookCrossing shelf.
