The Toledo-Lucas County Public Library and Literati are pleased to present Open Book with Brittany Gibbons on Thursday, August 20. The evening kicks-off with a Literati VIP member reception with the author at 6 p.m., followed by Gibbons’ presentation for Open Book at 7 p.m. in the McMaster Center at Main Library (325 Michigan St.). A Q&A session and book signing will conclude the evening. For those who would like to be part of the Literati VIP reception, visit for more information and to learn how to join. About the author: Brittany Gibbons is a humorist, internet personality, model and nationally recognized positive body image advocate. She began her blog in 2007, founded the magazine, and hosts “Last Call Brittany,” a weekly Google talk show. Her memoir Fat Girl Walking, is a New York Times best seller. About Fat Girl Walking: The critically acclaimed Fat Girl Walking is not a diet book. It’s not one of those memoirs about how someone battled, and won, the fight against fat. Instead, it is a book that reminds us all that being chubby doesn’t mean you’ll end up alone, unhappy, or the subject of a cable medical show. With her infectious humor and refreshing honesty, Gibbons’ reveals a life full of the same heartbreak, joy, oddity, awkwardness, and wonder as anyone else’s. Just with better snacks. Literati members will be treated to a private VIP reception with Gibbons prior to the start of her Open Book presentation For more details call 419.259.5193 or visit
