My SciBling Rebecca Skloot will be here in the Triangle for a couple of days this week promoting her book The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. I’ll be out of town for most of this (off to Boston in a couple of hours), but you should come to one or more of these events if you can:
Monday night 3/22, 7:30 pm she’ll be at Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh just off the Wade Ave exit on I-40:
Tuesday 3/23, noon, she’ll be Frank Stasio’s guest on The State of Things at WUNC-FM 91.5
Tuesday 3/23, 3 pm, she’ll be the keynote speaker of a mini-symposium on African American issues in science, medicine, and history at North Carolina Central University. Blair Kelley from NC State’s History Dept will speak at 3 pm, Dr.David Kroll will give a talk at 3:30 on the HeLa cell production unit set up in the mid-1950s at Tuskegee University by the March of Dimes, then Rebecca will give her book talk at 4 pm, followed by a book signing. The talk will be in the auditorium of the BBRI (Biomedical Biotechnology Research Institute) on George Street on the east side of Fayetteville St.
Wednesday night, 3/24, 5:30 pm, she’ll give the Crown Lecture on Ethics at Duke’s Sanford Institute
