Description

IMPORTANT: Registration for this event is at capacity. For those who do not already have a ticket, we will provide an alternative viewing room for overflow attendees. Be sure to arrive early, as non-ticketed entry to the viewing room is on a first come, first served basis.

Join us for the Nashville Reads 2019 finale with Dr. Darden and hear about her 40-year career at NASA's Langley Research Center as an aerospace engineer and mathematician.

In 2016, Darden was included in the NY Times Best Seller, “Hidden Figures,” by Margot Lee Shetterly. Darden is recognized as an international expert in sonic boom prediction, sonic boom minimization, and supersonic wing design. One of Darden’s NASA medals was for her active involvement in working with and encouraging students to pursue careers in math and science.

Made possible by the partners of Nashville Reads and the Peugeot Center at Lipscomb University.
