Libby Copeland with The Lost Family: How DNA Testing is Upending Who We Are
American Ancestors/NEHGS together with the Boston Public Library presents the third virtual event in the American Stories, Inspiration Today author series.
Award-winning Journalist Libby Copeland will discuss her new book, The Lost Family: How DNA Testing is Upending Who We Are, which explores the science of DNA while tracing the story of one woman – her unusual results and relentless, methodical drive for answers about her background. Don’t miss this hearing about this thoroughly modern genetic detective story, a deeply reported look at the rise of home genetic testing, and the seismic shock it has had on individual lives irrevocably changed by home DNA tests.
Amy Dockser Marcus, a staff reporter for The Wall Street Journal, covering health and science, will moderate.
This virtual author event is free to the public.
