SweepsDB - Fat Talk Book Club Discussion Sweepstakes

Contest Description

Ends in 10 Days 9 Hours

Enter below for a chance to win five copies of the New York Times bestseller, Fat Talk: Parenting in the Age of Diet Culture by Virginia Sole-Smith and a virtual book club discussion with Virginia!By the time they reach kindergarten, most kids believe that “fat” is bad. By middle school, more than a quarter of them have gone on a diet. What are parents supposed to do?Kids learn, as we’ve all learned, that thinness is a survival strategy in a world that equates body size and value. Parents worry if their kids care too much about being thin, but even more about the consequences if they aren’t. And multibillion-dollar industries thrive on this fear of fatness. We’ve fought the “war on obesity” for over forty years and Americans aren’t thinner or happier with their bodies. But it’s not our kids—or their weight—who need fixing. Fat Talk is a stirring, deeply researched, and groundbreaking book that will help parents learn to reckon with their own body biases, identify diet culture, and empower their kids to navigate this challenging landscape. Check out the Fat Talk Book Club Kit here! “Through dozens of interviews, Sole-Smith gathers and shares the experiences and observations of people in the trenches…She weaves these stories together with findings from published research, her keen observations of social media and cultural trends, and her own experience as a mother and as a woman in a changing body who inhabits the same weight-focused world we all do. If she’s left a stone unturned, I can’t find it…The day I started reading this book was the day I started recommending it.”—The Seattle Times“If you have ever held a piece of food or briefly glimpsed a part of your body and felt a complicated thing, you need to read this book. Fat Talk is about parenting—but also about living—within and outside of the nefarious stories we’ve been told about food and bodies and how and why they relate to health; about the dangers of restriction and the freedom and the power that can come from loving ourselves and one another on new and better terms.”—Lynn Steger Strong, author of Flight and Want
