Ross Perlin and Charles Petersen in conversation

A discussion of Language City

On Sunday, March 17, join n+1 contributor, linguist, and co-director of the non-profit Endangered Language Alliance Ross Perlin in conversation with senior editor Charles Petersen. They’ll be discussing Perlin’s new book, Language City: The Fight to Preserve Endangered Mother Tongues in New York, out now from Grove. Language City presents a portrait of contemporary New York City through six speakers of little-known and overlooked languages, diving into the incredible history of the most linguistically diverse place ever to have existed on the planet.

The event is free and open to the public, but RSVPs are strongly encouraged. Beer and wine will be available for purchase, as well as copies of the book. The n+1 office is wheelchair accessible.
