Book Study: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

Event Dates and Times

1/18/2018 - Starts: 7:00 PM - Ends: 9:00 PM
Peter White Public Library, Dandelion Cottage Room
On Thursday, January 18, as part of its Building Love: Imagine series the Peter White Public Library will host the first of five book discussions led by Fran Darling on The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot at 7:00 pm in the Dandelion Cottage Room.

Published in 2010, this book examines issues of medicine, ethics and race with the story of Henrietta Lacks, a poor, black tobacco farmer whose cells were harvested when she was being treated for cervical cancer. Skloot writes about Henrietta’s hometown of Clover, Virginia, the “colored” ward of Johns Hopkins, the laboratories where work was done, and her home in East Baltimore. Although her cells aided the medical community in finding a vaccine for polio and developing treatments for AIDS, they were taken without her consent or even knowledge.

Skoot's work of non-fiction won numerous awards including the 2010 Chicago Tribune Heartland Prize for Non-Fiction, the Wellcome Trust Book Prize, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s Award for Excellence in Science Writing.

There is no admission charge to attend thanks to sponsorship by the Peter White Public Library and Forward Action Michigan-UP. For more information, visit www.pwpl.info or call 226-4318.
