Event Type: Book Group
Date: 9/18/2013

Description:
 Her name was Henrietta lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. Though she died of cancer over 60 years ago, the cells of this poor former Southern tobacco farmer were harvested without her knowledge, grown in culture and became one of the most important tools in medicine. Join us to discuss this compellingly researched book.

Copies of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks will be available for pick up on the second floor of Main Library one month before the discussion.
