PIQUA — Edison State Community College will present New York Times best selling author Kelsey Timmerman, 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. The first speaking engagement will begin at 10 a.m. in the St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville and the second will begin at 12:30 p.m. in the Robinson Theater on 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 interconnectedness.

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.
