May Book Club
May 15, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The May 15 (3rd Tues) meeting will be hosted by Jacqueline Egan. She has chosen the nonfiction book, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot.
“Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor black tobacco farmer whose cells—taken without her knowledge in 1951—became one of the most important tools in medicine, vital for developing the polio vaccine, cloning, gene mapping, and more. This phenomenal New York Times bestseller tells a riveting story of the collision between ethics, race, and medicine.”
There are many copies of this book (in different forms) in the County Library System.
Contact Celinda Crego if interesting in attending.
