Best selling author talks about Where (he is) Wearing

New York Times best selling author Kelsey Timmerman, a Darke County native, was at Memorial Hall recently for a humorous and educational presentation about his new book, “Where Am I Wearing?”

He talked to Edison State and high school students about the people who make our clothes… their goals, their working conditions, their lives. “Check the labels on your shirts,” he said. “Where are you wearing?”

The Mississinawa High School graduate made presentations both in Greenville and at Edison State Community College in Piqua. The Greenville presentation was a required assignment for many students at the Edison State Darke County Campus.

Timmerman told the audience the first time he was published was in The Daily Advocate under Managing Editor Bob Robinson. Now he is the author of two books, “Where Am I Wearing?” and “Where Am I Eating?” For both books, he travels the world to meet the people who make our clothes and grow our food. He puts readers face-to-face with globalization and how our lives are interconnected.
