One State/One Story: Frankenstein - Rebecca Skloot and the Lacks Family

As part of the "One State/One Story: Frankenstein" initiative designed by Indiana Humanities, adults are invited to contemplate the complexities of scientific research and ethics while hearing from Rebecca Skloot, author of "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks." Learn more about the life of Henrietta Lacks as members of the Lacks family will be on hand to participate in a moderated discussion. Book sales and signings will follow. This initiative has been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and a grant from The Indianapolis Foundation, a CICF affiliate, and is presented in partnership with the Indiana State Library and Indiana Center for the Book.
