The Washington Highlands' High Noon Book Club is on vacation until September.
The title selected for September is The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. The book is about how doctors took Lacks' cancerous cells without asking. Her cells lived on in the laboratory, and launched a medical revolution and a multimillion-dollar industry. More than 20 years later, her children found out. Skloot weaves Lacks' and her children's tales together.
