Watch and listen: Deborah Eisenberg brings the letters of Rosa Luxemburg to life


Rosa Luxemburg was celebrated in New York at NYU's Tishman Auditorium on March 14th, where actress and writer Deborah Eisenberg brought Rosa's remarkable correspondence to life on stage. Eisenberg joined a distinguished panel of Luxemburg scholars who reminded us of the continuing importance of Luxemburg's work today: Paul Le Blanc, Anthony Arnove, Helen C. Scott, Peter Hudis and Annelies Laschitza.

Deborah Eisenberg, an American short-story writer, actor and teacher who received a MacArthur Fellowship in 2009, is the author of several collections of stories including The Collected Stories of Deborah Eisenberg,which has just been awarded this year's PEN/Faulkner Award.

Many thanks to Noel Benford for making this footage available. This event was organized to launch The Letters of Rosa Luxemburg.
