Quiara Alegría Hudes | My Broken Language

April 7 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Quiara Alegría Hudes won the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for her play Water by the Spoonful, a story of “shimmering, sustaining warmth” (New York Times) that follows an Iraq War veteran struggling for purchase after returning home. She also co-wrote the acclaimed musical In the Heights with Lin Manuel-Miranda, which has been adapted into a soon-to-be-released film. A playwright in residence at Signature Theater in New York, her other plays and musicals include the award-winning Yemaya’s Belly, Barrio Grrrl!, and Elliot, A Soldier’s Fugue, a finalist for the 2007 Pulitzer Prize. In My Broken Language, Hudes tells the lyrical story of her Philly barrio upbringing, the muse-like influence of her extended Puerto Rican family, and how she transformed her obsession with stories into celebrated, finely wrought art.
Books will be available through the Joseph Fox Bookshop
