MAKE A BOOKING

Join us for a chat about books (and universal issues), and maybe a snack, coffee or wine at The Wild Fig Café, Scarborough. 

We didn't quite get round to discussing two of the books from last time (as we were solving the world's problems instead lol) so this time around they will be : 

The Clockmaker's Daughter by Kate Morton

In the summer of 1862, a group of young artists led by the passionate and talented Edward Radcliffe descends upon Birchwood Manor on the banks of the Upper Thames. Their plan: to spend a secluded summer month in a haze of inspiration and creativity. But by the time their stay is over, one woman has been shot dead while another has disappeared; a priceless heirloom is missing; and Edward Radcliffe’s life is in ruins.

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot

Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor Southern tobacco farmer who worked the same land as her slave ancestors, yet her cells—taken without her knowledge—became one of the most important tools in medicine. The first "immortal” human cells grown in culture, they are still alive today, though she has been dead for more than sixty years. If you could pile all HeLa cells ever grown onto a scale, they’d weigh more than 50 million metric tons—as much as a hundred Empire State Buildings. HeLa cells were vital for developing the polio vaccine; uncovered secrets of cancer, viruses, and the atom bomb’s effects; helped lead to important advances like in vitro fertilisation, cloning, and gene mapping; and have been bought and sold by the billions.

I have had exposure to a lot of the Bib maps and compasses through my husband but I have never had the opportunity to put the two together and understand how they work. Finally I have some experience and might just be able to go for a hike and find my way!
