In this virtual event, award-winning journalist Libby Copeland will discuss her latest book, The Lost Family, which looks at the impact of home DNA testing on the American family.
A staff reporter and editor for The Washington Post for over a decade, Libby Copeland now writes from New York for publications including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, and more. During this event, she will discuss the phenomenon of home DNA testing, its implications for how we think about family and ourselves, and its ramifications for American culture broadly.
Moderated by Richland Library's Anita McCray. Anita caught the genealogy bug back in the 1980s, took her first DNA test in 2012, and has been steadily falling down the genetic genealogy rabbit hole ever since.
