Just a brief note to recommend a great non-fiction book, copies of which are now available. I read it last month along with our South East Glasgow Carers’ Book Group. The book is “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” by Rebecca Skloot. Although Henrietta Lacks died at the age of 31, her “immortal” cells have become one of the most important tools in medicine. While the book details the scientific discoveries and advances to which Henrietta’s cells have contributed, it also illustrates the often tragic human consequences. We discussed the book at our meeting yesterday which, by a strange coincidence, happened to be the sixtieth anniversary of Henrietta Lacks’ death – the realisation of that made the discussion even more poignant.
