Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly
Rate this book

Do not pick this up expecting to read a written copy of the movie. Hidden Figures is a great work of non-fiction, following the African American women who were an integral part of how the US made it to the moon. This is history we are not taught but ...more

I really enjoy Erin Knightley's books! Her characters are so bright and full of joy, they make me smile. I was happy that Derington was getting his own story. As always Ms. Knightley keeps the story "'clean" (no explicit sex) while still bringing ple ...more

Ray Bradbury
“...if you are writing without zest, without gusto, without love, without fun, you are only half a writer. It means you are so busy keeping one eye on the commercial market, or one ear peeled for the avant-garde coterie, that you are not being yourself. You don't even know yourself. For the first thing a writer should be is-- excited. He should be a thing of fevers and enthusiasms.”
Ray Bradbury

Martin Luther King Jr.
“There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.”
Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches

William Shakespeare
“To die, to sleep -
To sleep, perchance to dream - ay, there's the rub,
For in this sleep of death what dreams may come...”
William Shakespeare, Hamlet
