Monday, August 12th, 2013 | Posted in Collections, Faculty, News, Resources, Services, Students by Tomaro Taylor | No Comments »

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks has been selected for this year’s Common Reading Experience at the University of South Florida. The USF Libraries have purchased multiple copies of the book, authored by Rebecca Skloot, which are available to FMHI Research Library patrons via the USF Libraries catalogue online, through InterLibrary Loan, or by visiting the Tampa Library.

In addition to the text, USF Librarians have created a reseach guide to accompany the Common Read: http://guides.lib.usf.edu/CRE.  The guide includes a list of  supplementary resources, including links to documentaries and radio interviews. The guide also includes a brief list of discussion questions and curricula topics that can be used in class.

The following is a list of resources available at or through the FMHI Research Library to suppport and facilitate discussions centered on The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.  For more information about theses resources or for assistance using them, contact the librarians.
