Margot Lee Shetterly grew up in Hampton, Virginia, where she knew many of the women in her book Hidden Figures. She is an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Fellow and the recipient of a Virginia Foundation for the Humanities grant for her research on women in computing. She lives in Charlottesville, Virginia.
"In Shetterly and Conkling's approachable text, the reader is
introduced to four hidden figures and given a broad look at the
United States' history of segregation and fight for civil rights.
Freeman's illustrations are striking, featuring bold, fully
saturated colors. Feels as fresh as the original. Delightful and
informative." -- Shelf Awareness
"An important story to tell about four heroines, one that will lead young readers to the longer, more-nuanced coverage available when they are ready." -- Kirkus Reviews
