If you’re a grandparent, no doubt you know there’s no greater joy than sharing a book with your grandchildren that’s both educational and inspiring. And it doesn’t get much more educational and inspiring than this one!

Our guest, Katherine Moore, has enjoyed a long and successful career as a teacher and guidance counselor. However, Katherine joins us to talk about her mother, Katherine Johnson. You may know her mother’s name from her celebrated work that helped to launch the US Space Program, or the buildings that NASA has dedicated in her memory, or the movie, Hidden Figures

Now Katherine, her sister, Joylette, and National Geographic Kids have combined forces to create a wonderful children’s book that explores not only her famous mother’s legacy but also the nearly insurmountable odds this brave and talented woman faced and overcame. The book is called, ONE STEP FURTHER: My Story of Math, the Moon, and a Lifelong Mission and I am both thrilled and honored to speak with Katherine.

If you are looking for the perfect gift for the special boys and girls in your life (and a book that will inspire you as much as it does them), be sure to tune in for this one!
