Wednesday, February 18, 2015 - 7:30pm

Worn Stories is a New York Times bestselling collection of sixty clothing-inspired narratives from a range of culture figures and talented storytellers. Each first-person account begins with a single piece of clothing but evolves into a miniature memoir that captures so much more. The stories include Marina Abramovic on the boots she wore to walk the Great Wall of China, musician Rosanne Cash on the purple shirt that belonged to her father, and other contributors such Greta Gerwig, John Hodgman, Brandi Chastain, Marcus Samuelsson, Piper Kerman, Maira Kalman, Sasha Frere-Jones, Simon Doonan, Albert Maysles, Susan Orlean, Andy Spade, Paola Antonelli, David Carr, Andrew Kuo, and more. Edited by Emily Spivack, the collections offers an intimate look into the clothes we wear everyday.


Emily Spivack is a Brooklyn-based artist, writer, teacher, and editor who created the Smithsonian’s blog Threaded and collects stories for the found-art project Sentimental Value. Her work has been featured in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Washington Post. Spivack is the founder of Shop Well with You, which helps women with cancer use clothing to improve their quality of life.
