The folks at St. Bonaventure University have done some amazing programming in support of their common reading selection of Rebecca Skloot’s The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. Ms. Jean Trevarton Ehman, Director, Teaching and Learning Center, St. Bonaventure University writes in to say:
We are enjoying enthusiastic responses to our All Bonaventure Reads selection of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. Our 500 freshmen were given copies of the book at Summer Orientation and are to submit a short “Henrietta” reaction to our Provost by August 30; early returns are impressive. In addition, Henrietta – in cardboard cutout form – attended Orientation and is on deck for sundry Fall semester appearances, including Rebecca Skloot’s Sept. 29 address; the attached shows Henrietta in Orientation mode with four new friends.
