PROJECT MAYHEM: On HIDDEN FIGURES, by Anne Nesbet

This is my first post after the long, delicious, deep and richly emotional holidays with my big and boisterous family.  Ah, to write again.  The above link will take you to a review of the movie Hidden Figures (with a nod to the book on which the film is based).  I found it moving and inspiring.  It resonates with the national conversation on so many levels – and left me feeling hopeful, that our higher selves can and will triumph, even as we shimmer and shake on the edge of despair on our way to making this world a better place.  Again, the world of children’s literature; with its books, blogs and reviews, holds — at least for me — an unwavering candle up to the heavens.

Gonna have to see this movie, and soon.
