When: Mon., April 26, 12 p.m. 2010

Henrietta Lacks was a poor Southern tobacco farmer, the descendant of slaves, whose cells scientists extracted without her consent and began reproducing in labs. Experiments on her cells led to the polio vaccine and insights about cancer, cloning, and more. In the library of UC Berkeley's North Gate Hall on Monday, Apr. 26, Rebecca Skloot discusses her book The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. 12 p.m., free.
