In March, UWE Bristol Library is hosting Women's History Month book giveaways, to raise awareness about women's history and personal experiences.

We’ll be hiding the giveaway books around our campuses, and we’ll be posting location clues on our Instagram Stories @uwelibrary. If you find a book, it’s yours to keep.

This book giveaway features 'The immortal life of Henrietta Lacks' by Rebecca Skloot. This book tells the story of a woman whose cells were taken without her knowledge and used for scientific research. Intimate in feeling, astonishing in scope, and impossible to put down, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks captures the beauty and drama of scientific discovery, as well as its human consequences.
