What's not to love about Friends, New Orleans, and Public Library? Put it all together (with an "of the") and you've got a great group of people doing great things for a great cause! You should join. I did.

“Genascent: The Human Genome Project in Plain Words” By C.J. Canna
This book was written for thoughtful members of the public. Many fields brush up against this science, finance, law, food, internatio...nal relations, medicine, everything from agriculture thru zoology. It is what a logical person might want to know before using or investing in the science. The book includes particularly relevant journal articles explained here in common language. You’ll be introduced to the ethical and legal questions that were buzzing around the Genome from the start. To engage the reader it includes funny stories collected over thirty years of a research career. To make the cut the stories had to tell something about the science that the reader should know; or show something about the research environment.
ISBN13 Softcover: 978-1-4653-5061-9 ISBN13 eBook: 978-1-4653-5062-6
The author has written a trilogy of movie scripts named “Genascent: Footprints in Time” which tells the story of genetics from Gregor Mendel through 1993; “Genascent II: the Living Code” covering the start-up through the completion of the sequence; and “Genascent III: So It Is Written” showing the impact the Genome has had in fighting disease. The stories in this book could not be fit into the movies.
