Author Martha Moravec on "Magnificent Obesity"


Join local author, Martha Moravec, for a reading and discussion of her new book, Magnificent Obesity, on Wednesday, November 12, at 7 PM. Magnificent Obesity depicts one woman’s effort to look honestly and compassionately at her obesity through a kaleidoscopic lens of anxiety disorder, addictive behavior, agnosticism and the onset of aging.

Her conviction that it’s never too late to grow up, that it is possible to feel born again at any age and that there is no expiration date on dreams will inspire anyone who yearns to rewrite their story and take their own magnificent leap into a life lived with passion, purpose and authentic power. 

A diabetic weighing in at 324 pounds, Martha pulls together a support team of doctors, therapists and priests, helpers, healers and friends from the grid of small town life in southern Vermont. The dedication of people she calls “the angels we can see” proves that it takes a village to make a happy, self-actualized adult as she addresses childhood developmental trauma, panic attacks and phobias, addictive behaviors and debilitating symptoms in an often painful but always illuminating struggle toward recovery, reinvention and rebirth.Martha Moravec is a novelist, playwright and lyricist who makes her home in southern Vermont.

Location Meeting Room, 2nd Floor. For more information contact Brooks Library by phone at 802-254-5290 ext 0, by email at info@brookslibraryvt.org, or on the web at brookslibraryvt.org. Brooks Memorial Library224 Main Street, Brattleboro, VT 05301. The event is free and open to the public.
