Dear student,

I am delighted to announce that Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly is the 2019 selection for One Book One Northwestern, the campus-wide common read program.

Ms. Shetterly will be on campus to deliver her keynote address on Thursday, October 17, in Ryan Auditorium in the Technological Institute building. In the meantime, we hope that you will read her book, so that you are prepared to discuss it with the first year students during Wildcat Welcome.

Thanks to the generous support of the Office of the President, we are able to provide a free electronic copy of the book to every first year and transfer student.

You can download your pre-paid e-book using the link sent to you on July 9, 2019

This link is unique to you. The deadline for you to download your free copy is Monday, August 19. For more information about the book and upcoming events, please look at the One Book website starting July 1st. Students will receive six months free membership to Amazon Prime if you use your Northwestern.edu email address.

This book can be read on any device with the free Kindle app for iPhone, iPad, Android phones and tablets, PC, Mac, and on Kindle readers and Fire tablets. If you experience any difficulty downloading your copy, visit Kindle Support.

Best regards,

Nancy M. Cunniff
Director, One Book One Northwestern
