For this week's episode of Bitch Radio, I spoke with Bitch Media's Library Director, Ashley McAllister, about her blog post last week on the forthcoming children's book Maggie Goes on a Diet. Ashley and I discuss fat positive kids' books, some reactions to the book, and share some recommended reading. You can read Ashley's From the Library posts every week!
