Lowell Humanities Series present Rebecca Skloot

Wednesday, Apr 25, 2012 7:00p

Rebecca Skloot spent 10 years researching and writing her first book, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, a New York Times bestseller about a 31-year-old black mother of five who died of cervical cancer in 1951, and whose cancerous cells—taken without her knowledge—launched a biomedical revolution. Both a family saga and a clear-eyed exploration of cancer, racism, scientific ethics, and poverty, Skloot’s book was named Amazon’s Best Book of 2010. It is being made into an HBO movie.
