Author Event: A.J. Jacobs “It’s All Relative”

November 30, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Event will include presentation by the author, audience Q&A, and book signing. Books will be available for purchase.

In his new book, A.J. Jacobs, contributing editor to Esquire and NPR, shares a hilarious, heartfelt quest to understand what constitutes family – how to convene an enormous family reunion – and his three-year adventure to help build the biggest family tree in the world.

Jacobs upends, in ways both meaningful and hilarious, our understanding of genetics and genealogy, tradition and tribalism, identity & connection. Jacobs’s enthusiastic journey takes us across all seven continents. Along the way, he drinks beer with a U.S. president, finds himself singing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and unearths DNA links to Hollywood actresses and real-life scoundrels. It’s All Relative is a fascinating look at the bonds that connect us all.

Presented by Meet Me Saint Louis, in partnership with Kirkwood Public Library and St. Louis Genealogy Society.
