Fitness advice from an ‘unapologetic fat girl’

images/stories/1-2-13/hanneblank.jpg


As the author of a book titled “The Unapologetic Fat Girl's Guide to Exercise,” Hanne Blank is not one to make a New Year's resolution to lose 10, 15, 20 or however many pounds. She reads and signs this book  at Charis Books & More on Jan. 5 at 7:30 p.m.

The event is sponsored by Charis Circle's Founding Future of Feminism Program and a $5 suggested donation is asked.

Blank is one to encourage movement, though, and learning to love and respect the body you have.
She is the author of other books including “Straight: The Surprisingly Short Story of Heterosexuality,” “Big Big Love: Relationships Guides for People of Size (And People Who Love Them) as well as an editor of “Best Transgender Erotica.” She is also a classically trained musician and has taught at Brandeis University and Tufts University.

In other words, she knows her stuff.
