My guest today was adopted at birth, and raised in New York City. Although he knew for most of his life that he was adopted, it wasn’t until he approached his 70th birthday that he began to search for the identity of his birth mother. His journey and the many surprising discoveries he made as he searched are recounted in his memoir, The Gift Best Given. He and his wife now live in Hillsborough, North Carolina and he is a popular book club presenter. The Gift Best Given is his first full-length book. Welcome to Authors Over 50, Edward Di Gangi.
