By the author of “Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls” and a heroine of the body image movement, “ Landwhale” is an intimate, gutsy memoir about being a fat woman.
🌟 Join Jes as well as superstars Rachelle Abellar and Kim Selling as they chat about topics that we need to discuss more often and join in the Q&A + book signing afterward! This tour is made possible by Dia & Co. Free to the public.
📖 About the book: “Building on the manifesta power of “Things”, this memoir goes deeply into Jes’s inner life, from growing up a fat girl to dating while fat. With material that will have readers laughing and crying along with Jes’s experience, this new book is a natural fit with her irreverent, open-book style.
A deep...ly personal take, Landwhale is a glimpse at life as a fat woman today, but it’s also a reflection of the unforgiving ways our culture still treats fatness, all with Jes’s biting voice as the guide.”
❤️ About the guest panelists:
💫Rachelle Abellar is a graphic designer, fat activist, and body love advocate. She is the founder of PNW Fattitude, a group that hosts events for people of size in an effort to foster a fat positive community in the Pacific Northwest. Rachelle is best known for the “Self Care Journal” and the “Self Care Zine” series. Her most recent release is “The Little Book of Big Babes,” a collection of photos documenting fat fashion all over the world. When she’s not busy making zines, Rachelle spends a lot of time thinking about the intersection of fatness and fandom, and drinking bubble tea. She lives in Seattle with her cat Bijou.
💫Kim Selling is an always-nude fat queer femme based in Seattle. She can be found complaining about music for The Stranger, yelling about poetry for Gramma Press, and selling piles of glittering vintage for bunny ranch madams, crop top goths, and lizard queens alike on the World Wide Web. She is the co-creator of #horribleinternetfatgirls on Instagram and Jes prays for every person that tries to drag her online.
