CATHY CHAPATY Reading & Signing Searching for Grasshopper
Join us for an afternoon Reading, Signing & Discussion of "Searching for Grasshopper: A Martial Artist's Quest for Peace" by Cathy Chapaty.
In an emotional, inspiring memoir, Cathy Chapaty recounts how a 1970s TV series gave her a reprieve from chaos in a dysfunctional home and spurred a zig-zag search for peace through martial arts. Her path is long and arduous; events and lessons challenge her sobriety, sanity, and old beliefs. But what’s a good journey without a few hundred miles of doubt through a vast spiritual desert?
