Talking with Rebecca Skloot

On Tuesday, April 12, Rebecca Skloot read from her new book The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks at OHSU, as a guest of the Oregon Clinical & Translational Research Institute, The Foundation for Medical Excellence, and the OHSU School of Medicine. Rebecca is the daughter of local poet and memoirist Floyd Skloot, who introduced Rebecca at the reading and also played a big role in creating her book tour. We wrote about Rebecca's book on our blog last week.

Here's a little clip showing us getting ready for the reading at OHSU, the long lines of eager readers waiting to get Rebecca to sign their copies of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, and a brief conversation with Rebecca talking about her tour thus far. The book is terrific. I can't recommend it strongly enough -- and we have signed copies! They'll go fast, I'm sure, so don't delay.
