    So sorry my +1 and I weren't able to attend! I'll definitely try to make it next time! I absolutely LOVE The Bookstore in the Grove and am looking forward to meeting some nice new ladies! I'm the last of my family to read The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and everyone loved it! Below is some additional info my mom shared from her book group... (I haven't watched it yet...)

    Hi, this is belated but I had a wonderful time at the bookclub. So glad I finally went:)
    This club will actually keep me disciplined on finishing books, which is a nice change for me!
    I look forward to the next meeting - best regards to all.

    Sorry to change my RSVP so late, but I'm tied up with work and won't make it tonight after all. I hope everyone has a great time! I'll look forward to making it out next time. Thanks!

      Also, for parking, I find the best deal is to park along the street, $1.50 an hour. There are plenty nearby, Coconut Grove is not too busy for Wed night.

      Ladies - Thank you for responding so nicely to Velma. I did as well - just did it directly to her own page. Lovely to see we all do care.

    Nice to meet everyone last night and discuss the book. For anyone who missed it here's a recent article about the foundation created to help the family have input into the types of research done with HeLa cells. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/08/science/after-decades-of-research-henrietta-lacks-family-is-asked-for-consent.html?pagewanted=all

    I'm so sorry, I am just getting home from work and honestly could not log in from work to change my reservation as I didn't know I'd get "stuck" until it was too late. Hope it's a good night, especially with the discussion about the HeLa cells and the Lacks family. I will see you all next month :)
