Eleanor Estes, local children’s author and West Haven librarian (1906-1988), was author of the award-winning Ginger Pye and The Moffats, as wll as The Hundred Dresses (1944), the classic children’s book that serves as inspiration for the exhibition. Widely considered a timeless tale of courage, The Hundred Dresses tells the story of Polish immigrant Wanda Petronski and her experiences at her new American school.
