A collection of stirring and provocative personal essays by family members, writers, scholars, teachers, artists, and activists Talking to the Girls: Intimate and Political Essays on the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire stands as a written memorial to the 46 garment workers who died in New York City on March 25, 1911. The book honors the legacy of the Triangle fire in intimate accounts that foreground the lasting resonance of the fire that, as David Von Drehle puts it, changed America. Join the editors, Edvige Giunta and Mary Anne Trasciatti, scholars Laura E. Ruberto, and Evelyn Ferraro as they discuss the significance of the fire in a twenty-first century context. Richard Joon Yoo, one of the two architects who designed the Triangle Fire Memorial, will also join this compelling conversation.
