Join us June 29th as we welcome Colin Egglesfield to Volumes to talk about (and sign) his new book AGILE ARTIST: LIFE LESSONS FROM HOLLYWOOD AND BEYOND. Colin will be discussing his new book and will sign copies following the discussion. This event is free and open to the public.
Colin Egglesfield was born in Farmington Hills, MI and moved to Chicago at a young age. Before attending medical school, he went to a model and talent search on a whim and was soon working with some of the top designers and photographers in the world, letting fashion lay the groundwork for his acting career.
After moving to New York he starred in the long-lived daytime drama, ‘All My Children’ playing the son of Erika Kane which soon led to roles on, ‘Rizzoli and Isles’, and the romantic comedy, ‘Something Borrowed’ with Kate Hudson. In 2014, with his passion for wanting to make a positive social impact and a desire to get into the world of real estate, Colin started his own
real estate investment company, Stage 2 Properties and began rehabbing houses in the south side of Chicago. He is currently working with community leaders and developers including a nonprofit called ‘Art on the Loose.’ One of their main goals is to
help revitalize underserved communities including the creation of an inner city youth community center that works with those with interests in art and design.
These experiences and more have shaped Colin and taught him a lot about life, success, and making a difference which is the impetus for his book. In AGILE ARTIST he shares his rich life stores and provides plenty of inventive strategies to help you, too, break through to your creative, true self.
*10% of proceeds from ‘Agile Artist’ will go towards the development of the ‘Art on the Loose’ youth center.
