The Friends of the Library presents Dani Shapiro
Sunday, September 8 at 4:00pm. Refreshments at 3:30pm. Larchmont Temple, 75 Larchmont Avenue (corner of Larchmont & Willow). In the spring of 2016, through a genealogy website to which she had whimsically submitted her DNA for analysis, Dani Shapiro received the stunning news that the man she thought was her dad was not her biological father. She woke up one morning and her entire history–the life she had lived–crumbled beneath her. Her latest New York Times bestseller – Inheritance – is her memoir about the staggering family secret uncovered by a genealogy test: an exploration of the urgent ethical questions surrounding fertility treatments and DNA testing, and a profound inquiry of paternity, identity, and love.
