Our ACPL Reads selection for August is “The Gown” by Jennifer Robson.  London, 1947: Besieged by the harshest winter in living memory, burdened by onerous shortages and rationing, the people of postwar Britain are enduring lives of quiet desperation. Among them are Ann Hughes and Miriam Dassin, embroiderers at the famed Mayfair fashion house of Norman Hartnell. Together they forge an unlikely friendship, but their nascent hopes for a brighter future are tested when they are chosen for a once-in-a-lifetime honor: taking part in the creation of Princess Elizabeth's wedding gown.

The book is available from the Allen County Public Library in print form, and you can put it on hold online or ask for it at your nearest branch.  The book is always in stock as an eBook from Hoopla at https://www.hoopladigital.com/title/12285867  and as an audiobook from Hoopla at https://www.hoopladigital.com/title/12196118  using your library card.  You can also download to your portable device using the Hoopla app available from the Google Play and the Apple App Store.   A limited number of the eBook and audiobook are available on Overdrive.
