The Sculpture Speaks: A Refugee’s Story of Survival

THE SCULPTURE SPEAKS by Marge Pellegrino and Marianna Neil is a powerful, imaginative, compassionate work that will touch the hearts and educate the minds of readers. The story of refugees fleeing civil war, violence, and persecution in Guatemala in the 1980s and 90s should have played an important role in political discourse in the US. It did not. Nor does it now. The story, instead, has been relegated to the back burner of history. We know what happens when history is ignored. In fact, large numbers of young Guatemalans as well as Hondurans and Salvadorans are still crossing the borders in the southwest US as they flee from danger and violence, just as the protagonist Juana did in the 1980s. The harrowing story of one individual’s experience can motivate serious discussion of the issues and lead to understanding and even action. Co-authors Marge Pellegrino and Marianna Neil have created an imaginative re-telling, a fictionalized version that is as true as any documentary. We identify with Juana as she sets off on a dangerous journey from what was once a happy life with her husband and children. We learn from the statue things that Juana cannot tell us. And the sculptor brings immediacy to the portrayal of Juana as she sits for him. The presentation of facts and depiction of emotions are beautifully written and haunting. THE SCULPTURE SPEAKS personalizes the plight of thousands of refugees who fled Central America and continue to do so. Juana’s story makes us aware, too, of the courage of everyday Americans who risked arrest and punishment to make life safer and more secure for individuals fleeing certain death. In creating the story of Juana, co-authors Marge Pellegrino and Marianna Neil honor all who survived and all who didn’t. Reaching out to a larger audience, THE SCULPTURE SPEAKS will continue to honor them. Juanita Havill Writer and poet Author of Grow: A Novel in Verse, and many other books 100% of the proceeds from the sale of THE SCULPTURE SPEAKS goes toward the support the ongoing work of Owl & Panther, that provides expressive arts, service, and time in nature for refugee families impacted by torture, trauma, and traumatic dislocation. Owl & Panther also provides public and educational programs to help encourage a more welcoming community.

Can these determined detectives get to the bottom of the art-museum mystery before it’s too late? Discussion questions, writing prompts, a glossary, and nonfiction resources continue the reader’s learning experience long after this e-book ends.
