The Common Reader
Where Am I Wearing?: a global tour to the countries, factories, and people that make our clothes by "In his first book, WHERE AM I WEARING?... [Timmerman] traveled the world to find out where his clothes came from. Visiting garment factories in Asia and Latin America, he shared the stories of the people who make our clothes. From a 20-something t-shirt maker in Honduras to a single mother of two in Bangladesh, Timmerman humanizes the issues of globalization and provokes readers to check their tags and think about where their clothing came from."
