The Prom Dress Room, by Sandy Hazlett
YOUR PURCHASE BENEFITS The lawrence social service league!
The Prom Dress Room is a collection of poetry and illustrations that were inspired by a room at The Social Service League, a thrift store in Lawrence, Kansas.
“One winter I volunteered to clean and organize the dresses. As I sorted through their colorful variety, they began to tell their stories: Who wore this dress? What was her life like? Who would she become? Each week I took one dress home, made my amateur ink drawing, colored it in with fat pencils, and wrote the story of the dress and the young woman who wore it to prom. The result is this collection of nine illustrations and poems, The Prom Dress Room.”
The Prom Dress Room is available as a softcover and E book through Amazon.com.
