The Cultural Phenomenon of Home DNA Testing, Presented by Libby Copeland

Thursday, November 12
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Virtual Program via ZOOM – November 12th, 7:00 p.m.

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 35 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.
