An evening with Bethany Rutter

Thursday 15th August 18:30 - 20:00 at Liverpool

We are absolutely thrilled to host an evening with Bethany Rutter at our Liverpool store! Bethany is a journalist and blogger who writes about plus-size fashion and body politics, including the benefits and limitations of body positivity. She works in marketing at a plus-size fashion brand and is an occasional DJ. Her writing has appeared in the Guardian, The Telegraph magazine, Vogue, Dazed, to name but a few. She also co-hosts the podcast 'What Page Are You On?' and is the author of 'Plus+', a coffee table book offering style inspiration for everyone.

No Big Deal - Bethany Rutter

Emily knows she's smart. Emily knows she's funny. Emily knows she's awesome. Emily knows she's fat.

She doesn't need anyone to tell her any of these things - she likes herself and she likes her body. She just thinks it's time everyone else caught up.

When she meets Joe at a house party, he instantly becomes The Crush of Her Life and everything changes. At first he seems perfect, but as they spend more time together, doubts start to creep in. Turns out just because you're body confident, that doesn't mean you're boy confident.

With her mum trying new fad diets every week, and increasing pressure to change, Emily faces a constant battle to stay strong, be her true self and not change for anyone.  

Praise for 'No Big Deal'

“Oh boy is it brilliant. Funny, swoony and wise. Glorious to read a fat main character who is deep, intelligent and very witty.”
– Alice Broadway, author of INK trilogy

“Laugh-out-loud funny, insightful, inspiring, and glorious.”
 – Katherine Webber, author of Wing Jones and Only Love Can Break Your Heart
