Taryn Brumfitt: Embrace Yourself

In Conversation with Bianca Dye

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse

Join inspirational lifestyle author and the world’s leading body acceptance activist Taryn Brumfitt, as she sits down with 97.3FM’s Breakfast presenter Bianca Dye, for an inspirational hour chatting about her new book, life and inspirations.

When was the last time you wore a bikini without a care in the world? Did a bomb in the pool? Or participated in an activity that gave you such a thrill you almost wet your pants? (Or you actually did!)

Taryn Brumfitt’s new book, Embrace Yourself is the ultimate ‘how to’ guide to loving your body at every shape and size.

Director of award-winning documentary Embrace and Fiercely Passionate Champion of Women, Taryn has inspired people across the world to embrace their bodies. Her message is urgent, critical and incredibly inspiring. Learn to accept your body for all the wonderful gifts it brings you and reject the destructive fake images we are bombarded with every day.

Taryn will be signing books following the event and Riverbend Books will be selling books on the night.

Writers+Ideas is supported by O’Neill Architecture.
