The Lost Family

by Libby Copeland

Join us as we chat with Libby Copeland online to discuss her book, 
The Lost Family: How DNA Testing Is Upending Who We Are.

In this acclaimed new book award-winning journalist Libby Copeland explores the rapidly evolving phenomenon of home DNA testing through her lens as an Ashkenazi Jew and that of the protagonist, Alice Collins Plebuch, whose parents are Irish American Catholics.

When Alice takes a DNA test, the results indicates a high percentage of Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry.

The Lost Family: How DNA Testing Is Upending Who We Are (Abrams, 2020) illuminates how we think about family, heritage, and ourselves. Read more about the book here.
