Ross Perlin with Suketu Mehta: Language City at New York Public Library - Stephen A. Schwarzman Building
In Language City, Ross Perlin, co-director of the Endangered Language Alliance, follows six speakers of overlooked languages into their communities to learn how they are reviving their languages against overwhelming odds. He also warns of the growing political threats, and most importantly, shows how New York today is nothing less than a sanctuary of endangered languages. Perlin speaks with author Suketu Mehta about his race against time to map the little-known languages across the most linguistically diverse city in history.

Venue: New York Public Library - Stephen A. Schwarzman Building
