Cultural Erosion, and the
Future of the Written Word
A Vermont Humanities Council event
Thursday, April 28th
The world’s 6,000 languages are written in fewer than 100 alphabets, one third of which are in danger of extinction. Writer/carver/painter Tim Brookes, founded the Endangered Alphabet Project as a way to draw attention to this issue and help preserve these amazingly beautiful scripts and the vitally important cultural diversity that they represent. Tim Brookes is a graduate of Pembroke College Oxford and is now the director of the Professional Writing Program at Champlain College. Please join us for this special Vermont Humanities Council event!
