Endangered Alphabets: International Recognition and the Smithsonian

My Endangered Alphabets were the central item at two conferences over the summer, one in Cambridge (England) on endangered cultures, one in Barcelona on the book and the future of the written word. Since then they have been on display and/or the subject of lectures at the Burlington Book Festival and three library venues. In November they will be featured at Will Shortz’s Wonderful World of Words, a weekend for bibliophiles and word-gamers led by the puzzle editor of the New York Times. Next June they will be on display at the Smithsonian.
