Literature has been our guide to travel the world with WIL these past few years. Now it is time we take a turn back home - to North Philly. Here we find Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Quiara Alegria Hudes, as she tells her personal story to find her own voice. Her story is sharp-eyed and absorbing, as she works to find her own voice in the cacophony of English, Spanish, family, art, books, and stories spoken and unspoken of the barrio. A compelling memoir that accepts us into her life, her passions, her family and her dreams as she fights to become the artist that she is. But first, she had to find her own language.
Please join your WIL travel buddies on this compelling journey, into our own Philadelphia backyard. My Broken Language, long listed for the Andrew Carnegie Medal and named one of the best books of the year by NPR, New York Public Library, and more, is available in electronic and hard copy.
