From Fashion to Fiction | The Stories Behind the Style

Thursday, October 12, 2017, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for a conversation led by best-selling author, Corban Addison, and Michael Chen, a former President and CEO of a division of GE and NBC News, and currently a Board Member of Grace Farms Foundation, to discuss how consumers and businesses can encourage social responsibility by creating a movement around the “clean supply chain” initiative. The discussion will center around Addison’s powerful new novel, A Harvest of Thorns, and “Patagonia’s Human Trafficking Problem”, an article in The Atlantic about the challenges of addressing human trafficking in supply chains.

About the book | A Harvest of Thorns by Corban Addison
Available to purchase or borrow from the Grace Farms Library

In A Harvest of Thorns, Corban Addison takes us behind the corporate veil in the international apparel industry and deep into the supply chains of the things we love to buy and wear, weaving the truth about the human cost of fast fashion into a story about a beloved multi-national retailer with a devastating secret, a corporate executive with nothing left to lose, and a disgraced former journalist looking for redemption.
