Henrietta Lacks Study Tools

Whether you’re a teacher, a discussion leader, or an interested reader, it’s helpful to have some study tools when reading a multidisciplinary book like The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.

If you’d like to get involved in some HeLa discussion, check out Rebecca Skloot’s website, where readers are leaving comments and sharing their stories in the HeLa Forum.

There’s a wide variety of study tools online as well. Bluford Library at North Carolina State University has put together a Henrietta Lacks LibGuide with useful information about the book. Check it out for author information, YouTube videos, articles, discussion questions and more.
