Event Details

REGISTRATION REQUIRED. Curious about home DNA testing?  Join us for a live Zoom session with Libby Copeland, author of The Lost Family: How DNA Testing is Upending Who We Are. 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.

Libby Copeland is an award-winning journalist and author who writes from New York about culture and science. As a freelance journalist, she writes for such media outlets as The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Atlantic, and Smithsonian Magazine.

‘The Lost Family’ is available for you to access now with your library card on our Hoopla platform in e-book or e-audiobook format.  Click here to reserve a print copy with your library card.  Registered attendees will receive a link to the Zoom event the day of the event.  Live transcription closed captioning will be available.  Please contact Amy Ackerman at aackerman@sjcfl.us for more information.
