Author will speak about addiction at Courtenay Library

Lorelie Rozzano has taken her own life experience shackled by the chains of addiction and turned it into a series of fictional novels

Lorelie Rozzano will launch her book at the Courtenay Library July 13.

Vancouver Island author Lorelie Rozzano has taken her own life experience shackled by the chains of addiction and turned it into a series of fictional novels that weave first-hand experience into compelling story.

Rozzano will be at the Courtenay Library Saturday, July 13 from 2 — 3 p.m. to launch the first in the series, Jagged Little Edges. The topic is about addiction — and hope. She will be on hand to talk about the book and, more importantly, she wants to have a conversation with people about addiction and how it affects us and our community.

Rozzano works at Edgewood Treatment Centre in Nanaimo and is dedicated to helping others with their lifelong struggle against addiction. She hopes her books become a vehicle to get people thinking and talking about addiction and examining the role it plays in their lives.

Gracie’s Secret is Rozzano’s first book — a powerful little book that helps children find their feelings and voice. It’s available for free download at www.jaggedlittleedges.com.
