The Harrison Public Library is launching its One Book, One Community reading project during the month of April, which will coincide with National Library Week. This year we have chosen to read the thought-provoking memoir Inheritance: Genealogy, Paternity and Love by bestselling author Dani Shapiro. Among the topical issues explored are genealogy, DNA testing, paternity, artificial insemination, and bioethics.
