It's All Relative


You’ve probably got that one family member who just drives you crazy. Maybe it’s their politics or their constant talk about their cat’s eating habits, but you put up with it because their family, right? Well, experimental journalist A.J. Jacobs wants you to think more broadly, because the way he sees it, we’re all cousins. His latest book is a dive into genealogy and the new ways we’re understanding the human family. He’s coming to Utah, and joins us to talk about the world’s family tree.

A.J. Jacobs is a journalist and writer. His books include The Year of Living Biblically and his latest It's All Relative: Adventures Up and Down the World's Family Tree. [Indie bookstores|Amazon|Audible]

On Tuesday, November 14 at 7:00 p.m., Jacobs we give a reading at The King's English Bookshop, 1511 South 1500 East in Salt Lake City. Get more details on their website kingsenglish.com
