L. April Riccio ’69

I attended our 40th High School Reunion but sadly, couldn’t make our 50th Reunion. 

I retired from my long career in the fashion business doing public relations, marketing, merchandising and fashion for Garfinckel’s, Woodward & Lothrop, John Wanamaker’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, Lord & Taylor, and Neiman Marcus.

I recently published two children’s books and am really enjoying how these two books have reconnected me with family and friends around the country.  I’ve received a Mom’s Choice award for both of my books,  The books are available on: www.Etsy.com/shop/ASquaredPublishers

PICKLES IN PARIS is a story with colorful illustrations about life in Paris from a dog’s point of view.  Little ones will learn some French too!

TESS, A LITTLE LADY WITH BIG IDEAS, is a true story about my mom who was a fashion radio broadcaster and fashion journalist for many years in Bexley, Ohio.
