Hidden Figures Book Club
The girls will read the young readers’ edition of Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly starting October 15th. The girls will meet on Zoom weekly with Ms. Montgomery to discuss and share insights. The book discussion will be no more than 45 minutes with Ms. Montgomery facilitating the discussion and asking questions to the girls about the book. There will also be a discussion board for the girls to share information and things they learn while reading the book. This will be a very fun time to hang out and meet other older Girl Scouts while learning about amazing women.
