This book won a 2012 Independent Publisher Book Award (IPPY) for Women’s Issues. In this collection of 26 essays, women explore the myth and meaning of wedding dresses. Alan Heathcock, a national award-winning author, reivewed the book and noted that, “Each writer has her own dress, her own story; some of hopes fulfilled, some tragic, some funny, all compelling. Little White Dress hold the truths of humanity stitched into every poem and story. It sometimes made me laugh, sometimes made be somber, but always made me consider how the value of the dress has little to do with fabric.”
The book’s authors include physicians, photographers, television producers, best-selling authors, filmmakers, professors, stay-at-home moms. They are never-married women, happily married women, divorced women, gay women. What they say will touch, surprise, and inspire.
The book was inspired when the editor posted a comment on Facebook about seeing used wedding dresses at thrift stores. This one message resulted in a flood of stories, poems, and essays from other women. The essays were collected, edited and published in a book that took a total of two months to complete from start to finish.
