My guest tonight on Inquiry is ALISON HAWTHORNE DEMING. She is a writer, poet, and Regents Professor at the University of Arizona. Her new book is A WOVEN WORLD/ON FASHION, FISHERMEN, AND THE SARDINE DRESS. This unique memoir traces the history of herring and weirs on Grand Manan Island, the history of fashion in Paris and New York, and much more, all from Deming’s personal perspective.
