Tonight, A Room of One’s Own welcomes Harriet Brown for a reading from her new book “Body of Truth,” about our culture’s obsession with weight loss. Brown tackles the myths and realities of the “obesity epidemic,” exposing the biggest lies driving the rhetoric of obesity. She gives historical and contemporary context for what it means to be “fat,” and offers ways to think about weight and health with more nuance, accuracy, and respect. This free event is at 6pm at A Room of One’s Own, 315 West Gorham. More info at roomofonesown.com.
