GREENVILLE — Edison State Community College will welcome New York Times Best Selling Author, Kelsey Timmerman on March 1 to discuss his book, Where am I Wearing? The events are being offered free charge and are open to the community.
A Darke County native, Timmerman will engage listeners during two sessions on Wednesday, March 1. The first speaking engagement will begin at 10 a.m. at the St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville and the second will begin at 12:30 p.m. in the Robinson Theater at Edison State’s Piqua Campus.
Timmerman is the author of two books, Where am I Wearing? and Where am I Eating? In both books, Timmerman travels the world to meet the people who make his clothes or grow his food. In doing so, he puts readers face to face with globalization and the interconnectedness of all of our lives.
An acclaimed public speaker, Timmerman has lectured on travel and globalization around the world. He is particularly passionate about educating students through humor and storytelling, and encourages them to think globally and act locally.
These events are sponsored, in part, by a grant from The Piqua Community Foundation and with the support of Greenville High School.
