Library Book Discussion: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

All times listed in Central Time.

Join us for a presentation by Associate Professor of Biology Dr. Lee Ann Smith followed by a group book discussion of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot.

About the Book: "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, in vitro fertilization, and more."
