Kelsey Timmerman Where am I Wearing? Monday, November 8, 2010, 7:00 p.m. Clark Arts Center—Maddox Theatre
Whether laughing with garment workers in Cambodia or discussing SCUBA diving with lobster divers in Nicaragua, Timmerman seeks to connect people through words and pictures. He believes that if we can reduce global issues to the stories of individual people, we can better understand ourselves and others. Timmerman has a special interest in discovering where our clothes are made, and hence his recent book, "Where Am I Wearing? A Global Tour to the Countries, Factories and People That Make Our Clothes." His writing has appeared in Christian Science Monitor and Condé Nast Portfolio and has aired on NPR.
