PM Book Group: "My Broken Language" by Quiara Alegria Hudes
Thursday, August 11, 2022, 07:30pm - 08:30pm

The book group will discuss “My Broken Language” by Quiara Alegria Hudes. In this memoir, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright tells the story of attempting to find the language that best fits her, along with the languages (English and Spanish) she heard throughout her childhood. Beginning with the distant memory of her parents' split, Hudes evocatively recalls life traveling between her abuela's North Philly kitchen, her mother's West Philly home, and her father's farm in a homogenous Main Line suburb. Copies of the book will be available to check out at the front desk one month before the discussion. To join the book group, email This email address is being protected from spambots.
