Hidden Figures Event

Join us, Saturday, January 14 for book club + a movie as we discuss Hidden Figures, the story of NASA’s African-American female mathematicians who played a crucial role in America’s space program.

We’ll meet at 1:00pm in the lobby of Goodrich Hamilton 16 IMAX, Noblesville. Look for a gal with a Gal’s Guide to the Galaxy sign. We’ll see the 1:20pm showing of Hidden Figures. Gals are responsible for getting their own tickets and concessions.

The movie is 2 hours 7 minutes. After the film (3:27) we’ll venture across the street to Stone Creek Dining. We have a spot reserved for Gal’s Guide. Katie Harris will lead a fun book/movie discussion of the movie from 3:45pm-6pm.

When: 1pm-6pm

Where: Goodrich Hamilton 16, IMAX 13825 Norell RD, Noblesville

Stone Creek Dining, 13904 Town Center Blvd, Suite 900, Noblesville 

The book is available now in hardcover, paperback and e-pub. There is also a Young Readers edition for our younger gals who would love to join us for the movie and discussion.

From Harper Collins: “Before Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of professionals worked as ‘Human Computers’, calculating the flight paths that would enable these historic achievements. Among these were a coterie of bright, talented African-American women. Segregated from their white counterparts, these ‘colored computers’ used pencil and paper to write the equations that would launch rockets, and astronauts, into space.Moving from World War II through NASA’s golden age, touching on the civil rights era, the Space Race, the Cold War, and the women’s rights movement, ‘Hidden Figures’ interweaves a rich history of mankind’s greatest adventure with the intimate stories of five courageous women whose work forever changed the world.”
