Histories and Mysteries

Third Thursday of Each Month

The Lakes Book Club met to discuss The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot, the story of a poor black woman whose cancer cells, known throughout the scientific world as HeLa and taken without her permission in 1951, were responsible for multiple scientific discoveries such as the polio vaccine, cloning, DNA mapping, in vitro fertilization to name a few. The discussion addressed the collision between ethics, race, scientific discovery and the impact on her family.

The Book Club will take a summer break and meet next on Thursday September 21 at 7:15. We will be discussing City of Bones by Michael Connelly. This is his eighth mystery novel featuring LA detective Harry Bosch. The story begins when a dog digs up a bone in Laurel Canyon and it turns out to be human.
