NICK APPEARANCES....."A Passion For Fashion" Book Event at Cypress Park Public Library

 Nick Verreos and guest with his book "A Passion For Fashion"--"Reading By Design" Book Event & Appearance at Cypress Park Branch Library

Last week, I had the pleasure of making a special appearance at a Los Angeles Public Library "Reading By Design" Summer Reading Challenge Event at the Cypress Park Branch Library.

This was a nice event where I spoke about my experiences from being an avid fashion sketcher to many, many years later, following my love and passion, and becoming a fashion designer. Naturally, I also talked about my book "A Passion For Fashion: Achieving Your Fashion Dreams One Thread At A Time". The book is available on Amazon.com as well as Barnes & Noble and selected FIDM bookstores and I just found out that it will be available in paperback beginning in February 2018. Here are some photos from last week's event:
