The Invisible Bridge

Five of the ten winners of the National Humanities Medal for 2010 are Random House authors. Bernard Bailyn, Wendell E. Berry, Arnold Rampersad, Philip Roth, and Gordon S. Wood were all named medal recipients by President Barack Obama for their achievements and work in the humanities.
