Dani Shapiro

Monday, February 4, 7:30 p.m.

Conversation moderated by author Sarah Hepola

In the spring of 2016, through DNA analysis, Dani Shapiro received the stunning news that her father was not her biological father. In one moment, her entire history crumbled beneath her. Inheritance is a book about secrets within families, kept out of shame or self-protectiveness, and secrets we keep from one another in the name of love. It highlights Shapiro’s urgent quest to unlock the story of her own identity, which had been scrupulously hidden from her for more than 50 years, during which time she wrote brilliantly, and compulsively, on themes of identity and family history.

Actors will bring to life the complex relationships between Ida O’Keeffe, Alfred Stieglitz, and Georgia O’Keeffe, weaving together primary sources and letters with art, drawings, and photographs that reveal the enjoyment Ida and Georgia took in each other’s company prior to their estrangement in the early 1930s, as well as Stieglitz’s fascination with Ida. Quin Mathews’ short original film about the artist will also be shown at this event.
