The One City One Book celebration of “Hidden Figures” by Margot Lee Shetterly culminates with a community-wide book discussion on Wednesday, October 4, 2017, 6:30-7:45 p.m. at Ygnacio Valley Library, 2661 Oak Grove Road in Walnut Creek. All are welcome to attend and share thoughts on the extraordinary women who broke the barriers of space, race, and gender in the quest to launch America into the stars.
This is the 12th year that the Walnut Creek Library Foundation has produced One City One Book, which provides opportunities for community members to come together through the experience of reading to discuss a work of literature that’s accessible to adults and teens and touches on themes of common interest. 2017 One City One Book is sponsored by a generous grant from Wells Fargo Bank and supported by the East Bay Times and Minuteman Press Lafayette. This year’s program is in partnership with the Friends of the Walnut Creek Library and the Contra Costa County Library.
