Scranton Inclusive Books for Employees Offers Spring Book Club

The Office of Equity and Diversity, along with the Provost and Office Human Resources, is hosting a book club in recognition of Black History Month and the 50th Anniversary of Coeducation at The University of Scranton. 

All faculty and staff are invited to join the Scranton Inclusive Books for Employees club (SCRIBE) in reading "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks." 
Author Rebecca Skloot tells the story of Henrietta Lacks, her family, and the immortal human cell line harvested from this mother of five, a tobacco farmer and descendant of slaves. Author Skloot presents the Lacks’ family story in a compelling examination of human dignity, human rights, and bioethics. 

The club will meet on Tuesday, Feb. 28 at 12 p.m. in the DeNaples Center, Room 405.

Books are provided for participants who register for the discussion/luncheon meeting. A limited number of books/seats remain available. Registration is required.
