'NY Times' Best-Selling Author Dani Shapiro to Speak at Sarah Lawrence College PDF Print Email

By Ellen de Saint Phalle, Director of Community Relations, Sarah Lawrence College

Jun. 5, 2019:  Sarah Lawrence College is delighted to present New York Times best-selling author in a discussion titled "Dani Shapiro in Conversation with President Judd" on Saturday, June 8, at 11:00 am in The Performing Arts Center Reisinger Auditorium. 

The program, a featured event of reunion weekend, is free and open to the public. Dani Shapiro is the best-selling author of the memoirs Hourglass, Still Writing, Devotion, and Slow Motion and five novels, including Black & White and Family History. Her short fiction and essays have appeared in the New Yorker, Granta, Tin House, One Story, Elle, the New York Times Book Review, and the op-ed pages of the New York Times.  Her most recent memoir, Inheritancepublished in January by Knopf, is a New York Times bestseller.

In 2016, Dani Shapiro whimsically submitted her DNA to a genealogy website for analysis and received the stunning news that her father was not her biological father. Inheritance is the story of Shapiro’s urgent quest to unlock the story of her own identity, a story scrupulously hidden from her for more than fifty years, years she had spent writing 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.

The New Yorker called the book "unsettling...a meditation on what it means to live in a time when secrecy, anonymity, and mystery are vanishing. [Inheritance] encapsulates an ethical quandary with which our society has yet to fully grapple."

Shapiro earned her undergraduate and graduate degrees from Sarah Lawrence College. She has taught workshops around the world and at Columbia and New York University. She is the co-founder of the Sirenland Writers Conference in Positano, Italy.

In February of 2019, she launched an original podcast called Family Secrets in collaboration with iHeart Media. The podcast features stories from guests who, like Dani, have uncovered life-altering and long-hidden secrets from their families’ past.

Bronxville Public Library

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children.  All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
