Quiara Alegría Hudes is the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of "Water By the Spoonful"; author of a memoir, My Broken Language; and screenwriter for the major motion picture In the Heights.

"It was AMAZING! This was the best Harry Howard Lecture that I’ve been to, and we’ve had some great speakers. The students – even the ones who had to be there for class – all really seemed to be drawn into the world she painted... She truly was phenomenal and very kind and gracious."
