Talk by best-selling author Rebecca Skloot

Rebecca Skloot, author of the best-selling book The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, will talk and sign copies of her book on Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. in the Yawkey Center. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is about the legacy of 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. Skloot is a science writer whose work has appeared in the New York Times Magazine, O, The Oprah Magazine, Discover and many other publications.
