Please join us Wednesday, April 12, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. PST and 7:00 p.m. EST for a live show with host Denise Messenger. Her special guest is Nicole D'Settemi. She is a creative writer, poet, and artist from Niagara Falls, New York. Born in a tiny town bordering Canada only five minutes from the legendary falls, Nicole says she had an eye for beauty at a young age, and that included poetry. She can remember from an age as young as six, being selected as part of the city’s "young authors club." She was interested in lyric poetry from the time she was a pre-teen into her early-to-mid twenties, and moved into creative writing and fiction in her late twenties and early thirties. We will be talking about her book, Addictarium which was penned while Nicole spent time in an intensive rehabilitation center due to a devastating heroin addiction, and while this is a fictional memoir, many of the themes and tales are based around her own experiences during her two year stay in the notorious Queens, New York “therapeutic community.” You asked for it and we deliver.
