The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

The Immortal Life of Henrietta LacksThe Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot

Started this on February 18th; finished it on February 28th.  This was one of the best books I have ever read, without question.  A very important book.  

After reading this, I decided to search the Internet for more or updated information.  Here’s a Wikipedia article about her:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henrietta_Lacks and here is a link to the Foundation that the author of this book founded on her behalf:  http://henriettalacksfoundation.org/.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND reading this book.  It can be purchased at Amazon.com or borrowed from the Library.

Fascinating and illuminating.  Enjoy!
