Chat with award-winning journalist Libby Copeland about her acclaimed new book, The Lost Family: How DNA Testing Is Upending Who We Are.

Author and journalist Libby Copeland will discuss the rapidly evolving phenomenon of home DNA testing and its implications for family, heritage, and American culture. The book’s publication coincides with the 20th anniversary of home DNA testing for ancestry purposes and the reaching of a tipping point with over 30 million Americans tested. Both have enormous implications for those who have been tested and those who have not.

Libby Copeland is an award-winning journalist who has written for the Washington PostNew York magazine, the New York Times, the Atlantic, and many other publications. She specializes in the intersection of science and culture. Copeland was a reporter and editor at the Post for eleven years, has been a media fellow and guest lecturer, and has made numerous appearances on television and radio.
