So, what do you do when you’re too big, in a world where bigness is cast not only as aesthetically objectionable, but also as a moral failing? You fold yourself up like origami, you make yourself smaller in other ways, you take up less space with your personality, since you can’t with your body.
A leader within the #ShoutYourAbortion campaign, columnist at The Guardian and contributor to Jezebel and the New York Times, Lindy West comes from a culture that demands women be small, quiet and compliant. She is anything but.
Women and men looking to laugh, learn and explore a bigger and bolder take on feminism, fashion and self-awareness are invited to join Lindy this March as she expands on the ideas from her uproarious memoir Shrill, exploring how to survive in a world where not all stories are created equal and not all bodies are treated with equal respect.
Copies of Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman will be available for purchase on the night from the, SLQ Library Shop.
