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/.
Fascinating and illuminating. Enjoy!
