Jean Renfro Anspaugh, ’77 B.A. in American Studies, will discuss her new book, Fat Like Us, on Friday, Feb. 15, at 3 p.m. in the Johnson Center Cinema. The book brings diet culture to life. Anspaugh explores the stories of men and women who have struggled with weight their entire lives and who come to Durham, N.C., known as the “diet capital of the world,” to finally conquer their unruly bodies. Sometimes funny, sometimes painful, always vivid, the stories reveal what it means to be physically and emotionally transformed by a powerful diet experience. Books will be available for purchase.
