June Book of the Month is Selected

By June 5, 2019 Adults, Learn, News

 

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, by Rebecca Skloot, is the June book of the month. Join the discussion Monday, June 17, at 6:00 pm at church. Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor black tobacco farmer whose cells-taken without her knowledge in 1951-became one of the most important tools in medicine, vital for developing the polio vaccine, cloning, gene mapping, and more. Henrietta’s cells have been bought and sold by the billions, yet she remains virtually unknown, and her family can’t afford health insurance. This is her story.

A Prayer for Owen Meany, by John Irving, is the July book of the month. It is 600+ pages so get the book and get a head start on reading!
