The Body is Not an Apology Book Club

Join The Body is Not an Apology Book Club as we discuss Landwhale: On Turning Insults Into Nicknames, Why Body Image Is Hard, and How Diets Can Kiss My Ass by Jes Baker.

The Body Is Not an Apology Book Club is a place to explore the world of the body in its broader social and communal worlds. Our approach is based in Body Liberation - we celebrate the bodies we have with pride and curiosity and love. We explore topics such as fat liberation, disability, race and racism, and aging.

Hosted by Melanie Jones, founder of “You Don’t Have to be Teeny to be a Yogini”, a gentle modified approach to yoga that celebrates all body types.

We take our inspiration and name from Sonya Renee Taylor’s book and social movement. Find out more!

We meet the 3rd Tuesday of each month at Big Blue Marble Bookstore.
