The St. Louis County Library Foundation, HEC Media, the Favorite Author Series, and Left Bank Books presents Author and Podcaster, Rabia Chaudry, author of “Fatty Fatty Boom Boom: A Memoir of Food, Fat and Family.”
From the bestselling author of “Adnan’s Story” and host of the wildly popular "Undisclosed" podcast, "Fatty Fatty Boom Boom" is a warm, intimate memoir about food and body image. As a large-sized child, Rabia faced merciless teasing by uncles, cousins, and kids at school, but Chaudry always loved food too much to hold a grudge against it. Soon she would leave behind fast food and come to love the Pakistani foods of her heritage. At once a love letter (with recipes) to South Asian food culture and an often hilarious dissection of life in a Muslim immigrant family, "Fatty Fatty Boom Boom" is also a searingly honest portrait of a woman grappling with a body that gets the job done but refuses to meet the expectations of others.
Doors open at 6:00pm.
