The next meeting of the Bulldog Parents Book Club is set for Thursday, May 9, from 7:30 to 9 PM, at the Crepevine (5600 College Ave) when we will discuss The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, by Rebecca Skloot, which “documents the story of Henrietta Lacks, who was diagnosed with cervical cancer in the 1950s, and whose cancer cells (later known as HeLa) would change the course of cancer treatment.” It’s a riveting and brave look at the racial politics of medicine. Please join us! Questions? Email bookclub@oaklandtech.com. Hope to see you then and there!
