Join us for a live presentation via Zoom with author Libby Copeland. The presentation will explore the extraordinary cultural phenomenon of home DNA testing, which is redefining family history. It will draw on Libby Copeland's years of research for her new book The Lost Family: How DNA Testing is Upending Who We Are (Abrams, 2020), which The Wall Street Journal calls "a fascinating account of lives dramatically affected by genetic sleuthing." With more than 37 million people having been tested, a tipping point has been reached. Virtually all Americans are affected whether they have been tested or not, and millions have been impacted by significant revelations in their immediate families.  Registration is required and a Zoom link will be shared the day before the event.
