The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

Last weekend we finished Chris Matthews’s book, Tip and the Gipper and we began reading Rebecca Skloot’s fascinating book The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.

I’m already familiar with this text as we teach it in the new Humanities program, Conversatio.  It is the first time that I recall a text other than Scripture or the Rule of Saint Benedict being read both in Humanities and for monastery table reading.
