NYC Reading of Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls on Life, Love and Fashion
Wednesday Nov 14, 2012 7:00pm-10:00pm in New York
Put this ferocious fat fete in your calendar now!

The contributors of Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls on Life, Love and Fashion will be at Bluestockings Bookstore on November 14, 2012!
Time: 7-9pm

Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls on Life, Love and Fashion is the newest fat positive anthology from Seal Press. A collection of 31 stories written by fierce fat women, Hot & Heavy is an unapologetic call to arms and an ode to body liberation. The stories in the book have enormous range: April Flores writes about her life in the adult industry as a plus-sized woman, Erin Kilpatrick/Cherry Tart, a burlesque performer, writes about how her fat literally saved her life after a horrible car crash, Shawna Peters writes about journeys toward her fat vulva, Christa Trueman writes about how her daughter became the key to ending a legacy of shame she was taught about her body.

At the NYC reading you will hear a sampling of Hot & Heavy, including readings from:
Ashley Young's "Women with Big Bellies"
Golda Poretsky's "The Fat Queen of Speed Dating"
Marcy Cruz' "No Really. It Isn't Me. It's You."
Jennifer Zarichnyj's "Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love My Fat"
& a guest reading by Substantia Jones

Be there or be bored on 11/14. Bring your granny and your friends.
