D.J. Niko and guests
Thank you to the many guests who attended the salon, and to D.J. Niko for sharing her time and her talents with us here at The Betsy-South Beach!
“Thank you so much for making the salon happen and making it all so special. The Betsy is a gem, and launching a book there, among people who appreciate the writing culture and literary process, felt so perfect. I doubt I will ever have a more meaningful launch than this!”
– D.J. Niko, author of The Tenth Saint and The Riddle of Solomon.
