(PRWEB) November 3, 2005 -- Size Matters, Too Radio Talk Show Host, Veronica Euell, is on a mission. Her mission is to take a look at issues regarding body size and weight through the lens of authors who have written about the same.

The very first Book Club of its kind, Size Matters will debut November 8, 2005 at the Goodyear Branch Library 60 Goodyear Blvd. Akron, Ohio 44305 at 7:00 p.m. Bonus!! Dr. Pattie Thomas, Author of "Taking Up Space" will be on site for a book signing at 6:30 p.m. followed by a presentation during the inagural debut of the Size Matters Book Club at 7:00 p.m.

The purpose of the Size Matters Book Club is to give participants an opportunity, in a safe environment, to take a deeper look at size and body image, the politics surrounding those issues within society, and how they affect us. Members are encouraged to reflect upon their personal experiences and values around body image and size. This is not a weight loss group or diet club, rather, the Size Matters Book Club is dedicated to examining society's pathology and obesession with weight. We especially emphasize ways to remove the negative stigma placed upon persons of size within the workplace and within society in general.

A particular emphasis will be placed upon the philosophy of the Health at Every Size model of wellness--an approach to health and well being that focuses on healthy behaviors and natural diversity in body size rather than weight gain or weight loss issues.

The first book chosen for the Size Matters Book Club is "Taking Up Space" by Dr. Pattie Thomas (Pearlsong Press.) Dr. Thomas will be in town to kick off the first session with a book signing at 6:30 p.m. (a limited number of books will be available on site on a first come first serve basis) followed by a presentation at 7:00 p.m. at the Goodyear Branch Library 60 Goodyear Blvd Akron Ohio.

This initiative would be beneficial to those in the Health Care, Human Resources, Education, and Social Work fields as well as those with personal experiences within the area of size.
