Whatcom READS! 2018 Book Selection:

 

YOUR HEART IS A MUSCLE THE SIZE OF A FIST

 

By Sunil Yapa

 

The 2017 Whatcom READS! selection is Your Heart is a Muscle the Size of a Fist by Sunil Yapa.

Set amid the 1999 World Trade Organization protests in Seattle, it’s a fast-paced, raw and absorbing story about conflict and compassion. Over the course of one afternoon, the lives of seven people will change forever. Sunil Yapa pairs deep rage with deep humanity. He asks profound questions about the power of empathy in our hyper-connected modern world, and about the limits of compassion, while exploring how far we must go for family, for justice, and for love.
