Topic: The Stranger in My Genes
When: February 27, 2017, 7pm
Where: Ridgewood Public Library, 125 N. Maple Ave., Ridgewood, NJ
Join GSBC as we welcome CNBC host, Bill Griffeth, who will speak on his latest book “The Stranger in My Genes”. In the summer of 2012, Griffeth, a longtime genealogy buff, took a DNA test that had an unexpected outcome: “If the results were correct, it meant that the family I had spent years documenting was not my own.”
In this book, Bill undertakes a quest to solve the mystery of his origins—a quest which will shake his sense of identity. As he takes us on his journey, we learn about choices made by his ancestors, parents, and others–and we see Bill measure and weigh his own difficult choices as he confronts the past.
Meetings are free and open to the public. For more information, visit our website at www.njgsbc.org.
