The Round World reading with Dan Oliverio
September 18, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
One of our fave guys Dan Oliverio will be here to read and sign copies of his new book The Round World!
The Round World is the first book to crack open the taboo of obesity from the perspective of the people who find it erotic and who seek fat people as romantic partners. In sharing stories of himself and others in a personal and conversational style, author Dan Oliverio paints a vivid picture of how “chubby chasers” see the world and how living inside a taboo where the standards of beauty seem upside-down affects love, sex, dating, and relationships.
In a greater sense, this book is not just about fat. It’s about people making peace with their bodies and their desires. It’s about granting to ourselves and by extension to others the freedom to be who we’ve always been, and the freedom to love what we’ve always loved.
