Martina Scholtens, Canadian physician and author of Your Heart Is the Size of Your Fist, brings to life the challenges both of caring for new refugees and immigrants and of balancing her own professional and personal obligations.

Why should you attend?

“This book is all heart.” ―Riaz Meghji, Breakfast Television Vancouver

“[I knew] this would be a book I’d find interesting. What I was not anticipating was that I’d be so compelled by the work as literature, for its shape as a memoir, the glimmer of its prose, and for its depth and richness as memoir. . . . To say that it’s an uplifting and breezy read should not undermine the spiritual weight of Scholtens’ story and its importance―but hopefully it will compel you to read it.” ―Kerry Clare, author of Mitzi Bytes
