NEXT Up: books, beers and Border Collies with Niki Kapsambelis
By Jennifer Baron | NEXTpittsburgh
It’s a milestone week for veteran journalist Niki Kapsambelis, whose first book, The Inheritance, is being published by Simon & Schuster on March 7. The culmination of years of research, the book follows the true story of the DeMoe family, who was stricken with an extremely rare genetic form of Alzheimer’s disease in their 40s, and who possibly hold the key to finding a cure. A Boston native, Niki worked as a newswoman at The Associated Press for eight years. When not writing, Niki can be found at a hockey rink, on a horse, or playing with her dogs.
