Dani Saphiro, keynote speaker for VMX 2021

Keynote speaker: Dani Shapiro

Dani Shapiro is the author of the best-selling memoir Inheritance. In the spring of 2016, through a genealogy website, Dani Shapiro received the stunning news that her father was not her biological father. Inheritance is a book about secrets — secrets we keep from one another in the name of love. It speaks to our extraordinary moment, when science and technology have outpaced not only medical ethics but also the capacities of the human heart to contend with what we discover.
