About the Event

Harvest of Thorns by Corban Addison. "A gripping new thriller that unpacks the horrors of exploitation in  the garment industry, blending the nailbiting courtroom drama of John  Grisham with the emotional heart of Khaled Hosseini. In Dhaka, Bangladesh, a garment factory burns to the ground, claiming  the lives of hundreds of workers, mostly young women. Amid the rubble, a  bystander captures a heart-stopping image-a teenage girl lying in the  dirt, her body broken by a multi-storey fall, and over her mouth a mask  of fabric bearing the label of one of America's largest retailers,  Presto Omnishops Corporation. When the photo goes viral, it fans the  flames of a decades old controversy about sweatshops, labour rights, and  the ethics of globalization." -amazon.co.uk
