Timmerman held a book signing and Q & A.
Thursday • 7:00 PM • Strahan Coliseum
When journalist and traveler Kelsey Timmerman wanted to know where his clothes came from and who made them, he began a journey that would take him from Honduras to Bangladesh to Cambodia to China and back again. Where Am I Wearing?, the 2012-13 Common Experience reader intimately describes the connection between impoverished garment workers' standards of living and the all-American material lifestyle. By introducing readers to the human element of globalization—the factory workers, their names, their families, and their way of life—Where Am I Wearing bridges the gap between global producers and consumers. All are invited to hear Timmerman describe his experiences in this talk.
