Author Talk: Libby Copeland, Author of Lost Family

Join us for a special Author Talk with Libby Copland, an award-winning journalist of Washington Post, New York Times and the New York Magazine and the Atlantic.

The Lost Family is a deeply reported look at the rise of home genetic testing and the seismic shock it has had on individual lives.

Journalist Libby Copeland explores the culture of genealogy buffs, the science of DNA, and the business of companies like Ancestry and 23andMe, all while tracing the story of one woman, her unusual results, and a relentless methodical drive for answers that becomes a thoroughly modern genetic detective story.

Libby Copeland specializes in the intersection of science and culture. She was a reporter and editor at the Post for many years. Libby has been a media fellow and guest lecturer and has made numerous appearances on television and radio.
