The Inheritance, by Niki Kapsambelis, follows the DeMoe family of North Dakota as they struggle with the most devastating form of the disease; an inherited genetic mutation that causes the disease in 100 percent of all cases, striking its victims in their 40s, killing them in their 50s. Multiple generations of the DeMoe family are participating in a worldwide study that seeks to find a treatment for Alzheimer’s by 2025. Robin McIntyre, 33, and her sister Jessica, 36, are two members of the DeMoe family who will appear with author Niki Kapsambelis
at this event. The Inheritance follows this family’s courageous journey into Alzheimer’s research and the dramatic history of this disease. Book signing and reception to follow program.

Niki Kapsambelis was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts. She worked for several years as a newswoman for the Associated Press in New England, Los Angeles and Pittsburgh. Her work has appeared in publications around the world, including The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times and People magazine. She lives in Mt. Lebanon.
