About the Body Liberation Book Club

Welcome to the Seattle Body Liberation Book Club! We meet on the fourth Thursday evening every month and discuss a different body positive book. See the event discussion for this month’s book.

This is a body positive event, which means:

– We don’t talk negatively about the bodies of ourselves or others
– We don’t participate in or allow diet or weight loss discussions
– We enjoy the food, drink, and activities we came together for without judgment or shame

Price: Free. No purchase from the restaurant is required to attend.

Open door: First-timers are welcome! We’re a friendly and welcoming bunch. Don’t be shy!

LGBTQIAP+-affirming: This event is open to folks of any (or no) gender.

No children, please — let this be a space just for you. Some of our discussions will contain sensitive and/or potentially triggering material inappropriate for minors.

Parking: Amante has a parking lot.

Guests: Feel free to bring a friend.

Accessibility: It’s mostly level ground and a very short distance from parking into the restaurant. There’s one step up into the restaurant and there is a ramp as well. The chairs have backs but do not have arms, and are comfortable for my size 26/28 rear for several hours. I believe the bathroom is wide enough for a wheelchair but will verify on request.

Hi! I’m Lindley.

I’m a photographer, author, cat mom, subscription box creator, and fat activist.

I help people reclaim their bodies through photography. I capture images of people of all sizes, ethnicities and genders, not just the ones whose bodies are likely to be seen in magazines and advertisements.

If you can’t join us in Seattle for the book club, don’t worry. I also really enjoy putting together resources — so much that I do it every week!
