hello Harry,

Good to hear from you. Hope you have been well.


I am not an avid reader, but I do try and stay fairly well informed
and aware of current events and media

I heard the author interviewed about that book Tuesday


'Henrietta Lacks': A Donor's Immortal Legacy : NPR



this is a picture of Henrietta Lacks (part of her) that is living with us today, she will out live us all.



author - Rebecca Skloot

Thanks for the tip. I just it ordered from Amazon.com (after reading the NY Times review that you linked). It's a gift for someone else, but I think they will be very interested in it. Looks like there's a lot going on in that story.
