This annual luncheon hosted by the Friends of Princeton Public Library has shifted gears and we are moving online!

Our 2020 speaker is acclaimed, best-selling memoirist, novelist, Dani Shapiro. Her most recent book, “Inheritance,” is a memoir about the staggering family secret uncovered by a genealogy test: an exploration of the urgent ethical questions surrounding fertility treatments and DNA testing, and a profound inquiry of paternity, identity, and love.

She is also the creator and host of the popular podcast series, “Family Secrets.”

Ms. Shapiro will share her story of discovery with us via a live video webcast. She will be in conversation with author Lauren Davis.

Make a cup of your favorite soup, grab a sandwich and join us for this virtual event!
