Win a Copy of "Jello-Girls" by Allie Rowbottom
About "Jell-O Girls: a Family History"
"Jell-O Girls" reveals the intimate lives of three members of the family behind the rise of Jell-O, their struggles with finding their voices in life, and their experiences with the family’s curse of illnesses, both mental and physical.
The memoir interweaves the story of the history of one of America’s most beloved desserts with the stories of those who cannot seem to escape from beneath the weight of the images of perfect housewives as depicted in Jell-O marketing campaigns for decades.
This book will appeal to readers who enjoyed "Bettyville" and "The Glass Castle."
Reviewed for you here by librarian Sarah D. Publication date is set as July 24.
