    Thom Filicia book signing event for 'American Beauty'

    November 28, 2012

    Thom Filicia, interior design expert, reality television star, author, and Syracuse University alum came to Lubin house to talk about his newest book “American Beauty.”

    Contessa Brewer who is also a SU graduate and a news anchor here in New York City, moderated the discussion with Filicia and took questions from our alumni audience.

    Filicia is from upstate New York and fell in love with the Finger Lakes region as a child. When he was visiting, he found the perfect retreat on Skaneateles Lake that was a major fixer-upper and in need of renovation.

    His book “American Beauty” tells the story of his house, his inspiration and his experience in renovating his vacation home in Skaneateles.

    Filicia was one of the recipients for the Syracuse University Arents Award presented during homecoming this past fall. He now lives and works in New York City and is a proud SU in NYC alum.
