If you’ve read ‘The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks‘ by Rebecca Skloot, you’ll already know that great science writing can tug at one’s heart and mind all at once.

It’s a beautiful account of a family’s struggle to understand the bewildering legacy of Henrietta’s cells — which once lived inside her, but were somehow packed away in lab freezers and incubators after her death — that Skloot effortlessly interlaces with the hard-hitting realities of ethics, racism, and poverty in medical research in the 1950s.

Now Skloot wants to hear from you. How has the story affected your life, or how you view science?

You can go to  Rebecca’s website for full details.
