    130 years ago, Dr. Ludwik Zamenhof had a vision of a language that would connect the nations of the world: the international language Esperanto. Today, as UNESCO celebrates 100 years since Zamenhof’s death, Esperanto is spoken in a hundred countries and has its own vibrant culture and literature. Join literary scholar Esther Schor for a talk on Zamenhof’s life, legacy, and Esperanto today. Joining her in discussion will be Chair of the Esperantic Studies Foundation Humphrey Tonkin and Esperanto translator Sebastian Schulman.
