      Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love by Dani Shapiro

      What makes us who we are? What combination of memory, history, biology, experience, and that ineffable thing called the soul defines us? In the spring of 2016, through a genealogy website to which she had whimsically submitted her DNA for analysis, Dani Shapiro received the stunning news that her father was not her biological father. She woke up one morning and her entire history - the life she had lived - crumbled beneath her. Inheritance is a book about secrets within families, kept out of shame or self-protectiveness; secrets we keep from one another in the name of love.

      Moderated by Stephanie Laurino.
