American model Tess Holliday is coming to Birmingham to sign copies of her new book.
She will be at Waterstones in the city centre at 1pm on September 7th.
Her book, The Not So Subtle Art Of Being A Fat Girl: Love The Skin You’re In, is released in August.
A spokesperson said: “In her first book, Tess shares her powerful story and offers inspirational tips for everyone struggling with their body image that will help them not merely survive, but thrive and chart their own course to acceptance, power and true beauty.
“Tess’s number one rule in life is to love yourself – no matter who you are, where you come from, what your faults may be and what dress size you wear.
“It’s this discovery that has helped her through everything from a difficult childhood, being abused and bullied about her weight, to fending off social media trolls.
“The woman at the forefront of the body positive movement, who has been credited with transforming the fashion industry, explains why you should be happy to make mistakes but learn from them, love your imperfections and be comfortable in your own skin.”
