Books and Breakfast with Dani Shapiro
Literary Affairs welcomes back Dani Shapiro, best-selling novelist and memoirist, returning to discuss Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love, her highly anticipated new memoir that will be published January 2019.

Meg Wolitzer says, "With Inheritance, Dani Shapiro tells a startling story of origins their deep reach and their lasting reverberations. This book reads like a beautiful, lived novel, moving and personal and true."

Please join us for a very special Books & Breakfast event at the Hotel Bel Air on Tuesday, February 12. Expect a very personal, intimate conversation as Julie Robinson draws out the emotional, intellectual, spiritual and ethical journey that led to Dani Shapiro's grappling with her personal identity and writing her way through to the other side.

The morning will include a continental breakfast, Q&A and book signing.

WHEN: Tuesday, February 12th

ABOUT THE BOOK

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--secrets within families, kept out of shame or self-protectiveness; secrets we keep from one another in the name of love. It is the story of a woman's urgent quest to unlock the story of her own identity, a story that has been scrupulously hidden from her for more than fifty years, years she had spent writing brilliantly, and compulsively, on themes of identity and family history. It is a book about the extraordinary moment we live in--a moment in which science and technology have outpaced not only medical ethics but also the capacities of the human heart to contend with the consequences of what we discover.

Timely and unforgettable, Dani Shapiro's memoir is a gripping, gut-wrenching exploration of genealogy, paternity, and love.
