The book “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” is among works planned to be added in the fall of 2017 in some Fairfield-Suisun School District classes.
Lacks’ cells, taken without her knowledge in 1951, were used in helping to develop the polio vaccine, cloning and gene mapping.
The non-fiction work would be a supplementary book in advanced placement language and composition classes in the school district.
Trustees will take up adoption of the book at their May 25 meeting.
