When Dani Shapiro sent in a DNA sample as part of an at-home genetic testing kit, she had already spent a lifetime examining and writing about her family history. So when the test results revealed that Shapiro's late father was in fact not her biological father, her sense of identity was obliterated. We'll talk with Shapiro about her discovery, chronicled in "Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love." And we want to hear from you: Has genetic testing changed how you view yourself or your family?
