This Is Why We Sing
A Reading and Discussion
Racial and sexual diversity are foundational to the development of narrators in Belinda Bruner’s novel-in-progress. A published poet and accomplished scholar and singer, Dr. Bruner’s fictionalization of real family history explores the legend of Pancho Villa and his female fighters while following twists and turns on the path to truth. Music and magic realism combine to produce an astonishing, lyrical story that will leave you wondering about your own family secrets. Most suitable for ages 12 and up.
