In the One Book, One Philadelphia 2022 selection, My Broken Language, Quiara Alegría Hudes shares intimate stories of her family and community in 1980s and 1990s Philly.

At this intergenerational discussion inspired by Hudes’s memoir, community archivists, organizers, and artists will explore heritages of Philadelphia’s Puerto Rican communities, history and current activism, and present-day work to preserve Afro-Latine cultures. Following their conversation, a storytelling circle will invite attendees to share personal stories as we imagine the future of el barrio. This online event is presented by Kensington Library.
