“A quest was born. A book was written.” Where Am I Wearing? promises a unique global tour

whereamiwearingcover2_edited-4.jpgKelsey Timmerman’s debut book, Where Am I Wearing? A Global Tour to the Countries, Factories, and People that Make Our Clothes, is in stores now. The book recounts Kelsey’s “global quest to meet the people who made my clothes.” I’m always game for a travel book with a social justice bent and can’t wait to check this one out.
From the Inside Flap: “Ninety-seven percent of our clothes are made overseas. Yet globalization makes it difficult to know much about the origin of the products we buy … So journalist and blogger Kelsey Timmerman decided to visit each of the countries and factories where his five favorite items of clothing were made and meet the workers…. Whether bowling with workers in Cambodia or riding a roller coaster with laborers in Bangladesh, he bridges the gap between impersonal economic forces and the people most directly affected by them. For anyone who wants to truly understand the real issues and the human costs of globalization, Where Am I Wearing? is an indispensable and unforgettable journey.”
