Friends of the UNCG Libraries to Discuss UNCG's First Year Common Read -- Where Am I Wearing?

Book Discussion of Where Am I Wearing: A Global Tour to the Countries, Factories, and People That Make Our Clothes, by Kelsey Timmerman. September 21 at 4 p.m. in the Hodges Reading Room of Jackson Library.  Discussion leaders: Jenny Dale and Lynda Kellam.


First Year Librarian Jenny Dale, a member of the steering committee that selected UNCG’s First Year Common Read for 2015, will lead us in a discussion of the book chosen this year.  She will be joined by Data Services & Government Information Librarian Lynda Kellam.  Journalist Kelsey Timmerman traveled the world to trace the origins of our clothes. Where Am I Wearing? intimately describes the connection between impoverished garment workers’ standards of living and the all-American material lifestyle.

The Friends of the UNCG Libraries book discussions are free and open to the public on a space available basis, with preference given to members of the Friends of the UNCG Libraries who register.
