MI – Threadbare Signing

000000000000-ThreadbareAnne Elizabeth Moore appears for the first-ever signing at Vault of Midnight’s Detroit shop on Friday, June 24 at 7:00 PM.

Join us and hang out with the award winning critic, anthologist, writer, and all-around bad ass Anne Elizabeth Moore as she celebrates the release of her newest work Threadbare: Clothes, Sex & Trafficking.

Threadbare works through 22 vignettes to tell the story of clothes from angles often left ignored: “Narratives relate to fashion models, factory workers, salespeople, international trade agreements, foreign-trade zones, antisex trafficking efforts, and the vicious-cycle interplay between working in the garment business vs. the sex industry” (Library Journal).

Moore is also the author of Unmarketable, Cambodian Grrrl, and was the inaugural editor of Best American Comics.
