    Dear Jordi we are looking for you.
    Remember the ALL THE WAY Program and the time you taught our children to interview and prepare a segment for cable.
    Those children ,today are woman and man who graduated from college with a Bachelor Degree from Stony Brook or a CUNY or a SUNY.
    Happy New Year to you and your family. Are you in Spain? Please send me your phone or an e-mail I would love to talk to you. My cell is 914-417-7255.
    Siempre te recordamos con mucho carino. Felicitaciones con lo que estas haciendo……..Muchos carinos. Elena

    Dear Jordi Torrent,
    from your homage to James Yates I learned that you have led a number of interviews with him. I have known James in Paris 1973/74, later visited him in New York 1977, but unfortunately our contacts did not continue.
    I learned just recently that he has succeeded to publish the book that was so important to him, and I am very happy about that. I would be very grateful to have access to see/hear the interviews you did with him.
    I thank you for the respect you are paying him and the “héroes invisibles”.
    Thanks for any more information you might give me,
    and best regards,
    Christine Frisinghelli
