Margot Lee Shetterly, author of the New York Times bestseller Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Who Helped Win the Space Race, will engage the university community in a discussion of her work on October 3, 2017. It is part of the university’s Provost Summer Read Program as presented by the Office of the Provost. The program is built around a common book that is read over the summer by all first year students. This year's book was the Shetterly’s Hidden Figures. First year students dive further into the subject matter in an interactive dialogue with faculty and peers, inside and out of the classroom. A screening of Hidden Figures, the movie, will be shown on a first-come, first-served basis on Tuesday, October 3, 2017, at 1:30 p.m. at UH’s Student Center Theater. Shetterly will appear on the same day at 7:00 pm to those who have tickets at the Wortham Theatre.
