A reading and chapbook celebration of Fat Dreams (Barrelhouse, 2018)

The Galleries at Moore
FREE to the public
Nicole Steinberg's Fat Dreams showcases the literal and metaphorical ups and downs of weight loss and gain, and what it means to be a woman who comes from a lineage of size. It is an exploration of how the physical body collides with moments of monumental grief and unexpected joy, and how the body often doubles as identity in a culture that constantly portrays the overweight and obese as sick or less worthy of love.
