Alison Morse will lead a poetry reading with multiple readers that highlights the poems she wrote for The Price of Our Clothes.

Alison’s poems animate the Triangle Shirtwaist factory fire in New York City (1911) and the collapse of garment factories inside Rana Plaza in Bangladesh (2013). They bring to light our present day connections with garment workers in Bangladesh and invite reflection about our role in the garment industry supply chain.

Readers include Rachel Breen, Paula Cisewski, Patricia Cumbie, Carol Dines, Carla Hagen, David Harris, Deborah Keenan, Seth Levin, Chris Martin, Alison Morse, Marcia Peck, Julia Klatt Singer, Leroy Sorenson, Peter Truran, and Saymoukda Vongsay. Poets Anh-Hoa Thi Nguyen, Bridget Murphy, and Kate Kysar will read poems of their own.

The reception is from 6–8 p.m., with the reading at 7 p.m.
