¡Looking Bilingüe! with Quiara Alegría Hudes

Date: 
Tuesday, May 17, 2022 - 6:00pm - 7:30pm
Location: 
Online via Zoom
United States

Join Jade Cintrón Báez, creator of ¡Looking Bilingüe!, and One Book, One Philadelphia 2022 featured author, Quiara Alegría Hudes, for a conversation inspired by Hudes' memoir, My Broken Language. Engaging many aspects of Latino/a/x/é identity, ¡Looking Bilingüe! is a storytelling platform about multiculturalism and multilingualism for predominantly first through third generation Latinés.

This conversation will explore how Latiné experiences in the U.S. make a patchwork quilt rather than a melting pot. Moved by historias familiares and our own physical journeys, charlamos about how living in the U.S. impacts our Latinidad through place, space and multigenerational status. ¿Cuando somos ni de aquí, ni de allá y cuando somos de aquí Y allá? This online event will include a guided discussion inviting attendees to share and reflect on their own experiences of cultural and linguistic identity.
