Nov 8, 2010

Today, we hear about a University of Iowa professor's quest to save a rare and dying Romance language, Rovignese, spoken by a dwindling number of people in a part of Croatia. IPR's Charity Nebbe speaks with Prof. Russell Valentino and later with NPR's librarian Kee Malesky. Her first book is just out, "All Facts Considered: The Essential Library of Inessential Knowledge."
