Today we’re featuring Adrienne Possenti on the Voices of Saranac Lake! Adrienne's parents, Elizabeth and Joseph Glick had recently bought a diner in Glens Falls when Elizabeth began showing symptoms of tuberculosis. The family moved to Saranac Lake with their two children and Elizabeth’s father. Adrienne grew up in Saranac Lake while her mother took the cure. In a 2018 interview, Adrienne shared her memories of Saranac Lake, from her mother’s long struggle with TB, to the poverty in their neighborhood, too hula-hooping in the 50s. Visit our website to read some of Adrienne's memoirs and listen to the interview!
