In 1976, twenty-one-year-old Sebastian Abineri was cast in Richard Attenborough´s epic war film, A Bridge Too Far. He joined ´´Attenborough´s Private Army´´ (APA), a group of fifty young British actors, who were brought together to train under the eagle eye of a former director of The SAS to represent the heroic band of Paratroopers who held Arnhem Bridge against insurmountable odds in 1944. The APA worked for six months alongside major stars such as Anthony Hopkins, Sean Connery, Michael Caine and Sir Laurence Oliver. It was one of the hottest summers on record; so hot that the APA drank the local bars dry! The Boys from the Bridge recounts their extraordinary story. 1. Language: English.

Each autumn, in conjunction with the conferring of The National Book Awards in Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, and Young People´s Literature, the Board of Directors of the Foundation presents a Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters.

The 2003 recipient of this distinguished award was presented to one of the great voices of American literature, Stephen King. King accepts the award with grace and wit. His acceptance speech is filled with loving thanks to his wife Tabitha and with a passionate appreciation of his craft.

Art in Puerto Rico occupies a kind of bridge position, between the North American art world one the one hand and the various Latin American and Caribbean art worlds on the other. Puerto Rican artists have easy physical aspects to the United States, and large Puerto Rican colonies in major American cities, notably New York and Chicago, have led to the birth of mixed vernacular cultures. The one in New York is sometimes referred to as Nuyorican, and has a populist downtown vibe that swings the spotlight toward it every time graffiti art returns to fashion. 1. Language: English.
