Footlights Book Club

Hidden Figures

Currently fully subscribed

Footlights Book Club, run in conjunction with Conwy Library Service, is held on the first Friday of each month, from 12noon, at Catlin’s Café Bar. We focus on novels which have been adapted for cinema, TV and the stage.

Our September book is the true story ‘Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly, which was turned into a major film starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monae, Kirsten Dunst, and Kevin Costner.

It’s a phenomenal true story of the black female mathematicians at NASA whose calculations helped fuel some of America's greatest achievements in space.

We’ll be discussing this book on Friday, 6 September. Borrow the book from a Conwy county library and make sure you have read it before then! You can access copies from the Venue Cymru reading group collection.

The book club is now full but we are holding a waiting list. Please email if you wish to add your name to it.
