Check out and sign up for GoodReads and add Kim Palmer and as your GoodReads Friend.

Book Club will meet May 9th.  Book to Movie in the Lecture Room.  You may invite a friend to watch.

Now in a special new edition perfect for young readers, this is the amazing true story of four African-American female mathematicians at NASA who helped achieve some of the greatest moments in our space program. Soon to be a major motion picture.

Before John Glenn orbited the earth or Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of dedicated female mathematicians known as “human computers” used pencils, slide rules, and adding machines to calculate the numbers that would launch rockets, and astronauts, into space. This book brings to life the stories of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Christine Darden, four African-American women who lived through the Civil Rights era, the Space Race, the Cold War, and the movement for gender equality, and whose work forever changed the face of NASA and the country.

Book Club is open to everyone.  Please come to the library media center to sign up or if you have any questions.

As a member of the Book Club, you receive this book free of charge, with the understanding that if you can not attend the scheduled meeting, for any reason, you will be charged for my cost of the book.

Book club meet will meet  one Thursday per month, immediately after school in the Library Media Center.  Book club lasts for about 1 to 1 ½ hours.

As soon as all the copies of the book come in, I will choose a date for each meeting.  You will receive an email and listen for a morning announcement for you to come and pick up the book.

Due to the large number of book club members, if you do not attend the meeting because you have a previous commitment, we will charge you our cost of the book. You might want to consider borrowing a book from someone or taking out a Library copy if you might not be able to attend the meeting for any reason.  I CAN’T accept returned books in perfect condition because it has caused me to lose money from Toadstool.

We have snacks and drinks at each meeting.  Please be willing to volunteer to bring something in on occasion so that not one person is always bringing in snacks.

Mrs. Palmer & Mrs. McNally
