At the gathering (in fact I think it was part of a convention) there was an announcement that, in the people milling about, were the author and camera people. We were told that if we wanted to tell "OUR" story about being FAT in America we could and it would be appreciated! So I told 1 of my many stories and I think my sister did also although I would have to check the chapters to see if she did get hers in print. My story is one chapter in the book but its been so long ago that I do not remember what it said or what it was titled! We were also asked if they could take a picture. Back then I thought I was looking pretty good for myself (a long time ago!) so we agreed. We were never contacted again and wasnt even alerted that we made the cover or were in the book! Didnt even get a free copy! I dont think I ever signed a release for the pictures! How crazy was that? Anyhow--its an interesting and insightful look into a part of the lives of different people of size from the 70's or 80's!
