Reading With You Summer Reading List

You don’t have to travel to Paris, Rome, Milan or Tokyo or visit the houses of Chanel, Givenchy, Valentino or Armani to see the hottest fashions of the year.   The Eco-fashion Show will bring you unforgettable designs at the Live Green Expo.  Included in the show will be reconstructed garments which will be scored by a panel of three judges, eco-friendly designs painstakingly dyed using colors derived from nature, affordable and breath-taking gowns from your local thrift stores, and for the first time ever…”trashion” will take the catwalk by storm! 
Come meet Randy McIlwain, General Assignment Reporter from NBC 5, who will serve as moderator.  Randy has received numerous awards in journalism, including Associated Press and civic honors.   Last year’s show was standing room only so come early to get a good seat.  The show begins at 5:15 p.m. in the Windhaven Room

The Live Green Expo has something for everyone. It features responsible farming, cooking demos, children’s activities, over 150 exhibitors, and much more! So, bring the whole family to experience the Live Green Expo.
