Sending Holiday Cheer

Every fall Wg selects a current-year release as our holiday book. It's a special tradition that allows us to share our appreciation—and deliver a mid-winter read—to our network of friends.

HOLIDAY GIFT TRADITION

2016 highlighted Margot Lee Shetterly’s Hidden Figures, the inspiring true story of three African American women whose mathematic contributions at NASA helped propel the U.S. through a World War, a Cold War and a Space Race.
