Yesss! As many movie buffs know, the Academy Award nominations were announced this week. As a bookworm who loves movies, Best Adapted Screenplay is one of my favourite categories. This year is no different, especially since Hidden Figures has been nominated for it! If you haven’t read Margot Lee Shetterly‘s amazing book inspired by the black mathematicians and engineers who worked at NASA during the space race, I’d highly recommend it. Learn more about Hidden Figures here.
