My Broken Language is Quiara Alegría Hudes' musical memoir of searching for her own voice while coming of age in 1980s and 1990s Philadelphia, as she strives to become an artist and tell the stories of her family and community. A limited number of books are available for participants. Email [email protected] to reserve your free copy of My Broken Language. Reading the book beforehand is not necessary to participate in the discussion!
