Dinner 5-7pm, Keynote Talk 7pm. Limited Availability for two special events at Morehead Planetarium and Science Center with the author of the book “Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race.” Author Margot Lee Shetterly will participate in a special book-club style dinner and then give a keynote talk in Morehead’s GlaxoSmithKline Fulldome Theater Thursday. Shetterly’s book tells the true story of the black “human computers” who used math to change their own lives—and their country’s future as NASA and the United States battled the Soviet Union for supremacy in space. The book is being adapted into a major motion picture starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae. The movie opens in early 2017.
