The Poetry Foundation, Wednesday, January 28, 2015 at 7pm

In anticipation of the show's airing on WTTW, join Grubin and Holman, along with poets Peter Cook and Parsino Carlos Peynetsa for an evening of performances, film clips, and discussion about endangered languages.

Presented in partnership with WTTW. (lilithcat)
