The Cultural Phenomenon of Home DNA Testing with Author: Libby Copeland
November 12, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Bridgeport Public Library, 925 Broad Street
On Thursday, November 12th, at 7PM, Author Libby Copeland will present “The Cultural Phenomenon of Home DNA Testing.” 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.
