Your Heart is a Muscle the Size of a Fist by Sunil Yapa, Centre County Reads 2018

Join us for a discussion of Your Heart is a Muscle the Size of a Fist by Sunil Yapa.

Over the course of one life-altering afternoon, that of Seattle's 1999 WTO protests, the fates of seven people will change forever.  Foremost among them are police Chief Bishop and his estranged son,  Victor,  a nomadic and scrappy teenager he hasn't seen in three years.  When Chief Bishop reluctantly unleashes tear gas on the unsuspecting crowd, it seems his hopes for reconciliation with his son, as well as the future of his city, are in serious peril. In this raw and breathtaking novel, Yapa marries a deep rage with a deep humanity. In doing so he casts an unflinching eye on the nature and limits of compassion, and the heartbreaking difference between what is right and what is possible. 

Sunil Yapa will speak on March 21, 2018 as part of Centre County Reads
