Can’t put it downPosted: October 19, 2010
I’m reading the most amazing book right now. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot.
Anyone who knows me knows I’m addicted to NPR. A few months back, I caught just a snippet of the author talking about this book on the radio and was instantly intrigued. I couldn’t believe how much this woman had contributed to modern medicine and I had never heard of her before. I was also interested because some of Henrietta’s story takes place in Baltimore, a place I travel to often.
Lucky for me, a friend recently gave me the book as a gift. And now that I’ve started reading it, I cannot put it down.
