Please bring book ideas for September, the topic is fat and feminism (aka sizeism).

Join us for our monthly book group discussion.  We meet at 6:30, chat, start introductions at 6:45 and begin talking about the discussion questions.

We finish the discussion around 8:10, collect donations for Meetup fees and then we pick a book to read up to two months in advance, and a topic for the following month after that.

    Last minute change in plans, have to drive out of town tonight instead of tomorrow. Very disappointed, I really wanted to talk about this book!!

    Hey guys - I feel like shit. FYI, Aqua Yoga in a freezing ass cold pool is NOT recommended. In any case, I need to skip this since it hurts to talk and that really defeats the purpose of going! Would there be objections to me offering book suggestions though for the September topic, fat and feminism? I wanted to throw in the following 2 titles: 1// Fat Shame: Stigma and the Fat Body in American Culture, Amy Erdman Farrell LINK: http://amzn.to/14Evr7w

    2// What's Wrong with Fat?, Abigail C. Saguy LINK: http://amzn.to/15eiIWW

    I hope it's ok with you guys!

    - sabrina

    Ack, just started this book today- wish I had done so earlier! I would love to make it to one of these discussions but never get the reading done "on time."

      Most of us don't finish the book usually, if that helps. You can always attend regardless!

    Hey! my roommate recently opened a new boutique in Hillcrest and she is interested in hosting our next book club meeting at the store. What do you all think? It's called Harlequin Boutique and is located at 1st & University.
