  1. On how to write about poverty, another interesting model is in a new book, “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.” While it’s partially about science history and issues in medical ethics, it’s also a very detailed biography of a poor woman who died young and her family over 80 years. Beyond the detailed focus on a single family, there’s also a good depiction of the barriers preventing this family from getting out of poverty or learning their own interesting history (i.e. lack of education and lack of people willing to educate them)
