Rebecca Skloot: Creatures Great and Small: Skloot's debut nonfiction work, "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks," was a rare phenomenon: a science book that became a huge best-seller and award-winner (including the Tribune's 2010 Heartland Prize) that got the country debating the intersection of race, ethics and medical research. After three-plus years as a much-in-demand speaker on that subject, the author will shift gears and give Humanities Festivalgoers a preview of her follow-up work, which explores the roles that animals play in the world of humans.
1 p.m. Sunday, Reva and David Logan Center for the Performing Arts, 915 E. 60th St.; $10, free for teachers and students
