Sierra Nevada College’s Tahoe’s Writers in the Woods kicks off with author Sunil Yapa on Sept. 15.
Yapa’s first novel, “Your Heart is a Muscle the Size of a Fist,” set during the Seattle World Trade Organization protests of November 1999, is this year’s Common Read and a 2016 Time magazine Best Books of the Year, an Amazon 2016 Best Books of the year, a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Pick, and an Indies Next Pick.
Yapa will give a free reading at the campus library from 7-9pm. He will conduct a workshop on Sept. 16 at 10am. To register, go online.
The Writers in the Woods Literary Speaker Series brings well-known poets and writers from all over the country to the campus for intimate readings and workshops, where audience members can meet and exchange ideas with the guest writers.
