About Worn Stories

Our clothes are full of memory and meaning. That’s why we all have garments—hanging in our closets, shoved in the back of drawers, and boxed up in garages—which we haven’t worn in years but just can’t part with. And there are the clothes we wear every day whose stories are still unfolding. Everyone has a memoir in miniature in at least one piece of clothing. The first-person accounts Emily Spivack has collected in WORN IN NEW YORK and WORN STORIES reveal how those clothes protect us, serve as a uniform, assert our identity, or bring us back to a place and time—how they are encoded with the stories of our lives.

Now a book of memoirs AND a limited series on Netflix.

About This Event

We invite Main Street members to watch episodes of the series or read the book and come together on Zoom for a lively conversation. Those attending will also be encouraged to bring a piece of clothing that has a special meaning.

Join us to screen episodes of Worn Stories during Connect Open Hours on Thursday September 9th from 2:00PM – 5:00PM and Tuesday, September 14th from 12:00PM – 2:00 PM.
