DGC Book Club – Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love (2020) by Dani Shapiro
December 8, 2023 @ 12:30 pm
After whimsically submitting her DNA to a testing company, author Dani Shapiro received the stunning news that her father was not her biological father. In one morning, her entire history–the life she had lived–crumbled beneath her and sent her on a quest to unlock the story of her own biological identity that had been scrupulously hidden from her for more than 50 years, years during which she wrote brilliantly, and compulsively, on themes of identity and family history.
