    The LA Times book review section named Skloot one of its four "Faces to Watch in ," an honor that, based on "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" is well-deserved. Five stars--it was hard to put down this compelling, admirable and eminently readable book. DUNDALK — Henrietta Lacks’ grandson, Ron L. Lacks, will publish a book on Jan. 29 called “Henrietta Lacks The Untold Story,” to set the record straight about his grandmother’s life from the perspective of people who actually knew and were apart of her.

    Welcome to the site for the family of Henrietta Lacks. Mrs. Lacks was a wife, mother of five native of rural southern Virginia, resident of Turner Station in Dundalk.

    Thank you for signing the Guest Book for Dolores Henrietta Bachak. All Guest Book entries and photos are reviewed for appropriate content before appearing online. Most entries will appear within. Back in , Rebeccas Skloot published "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" and I read this excellent book. The thrust of the book was three-fold: about the contribution of Henrietta's cells to medical research, about the life of Henrietta that Skloot was able to piece together with the help of her family and about her relationship with Henrietta's family.
