Oscar-nominee British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor speaks at a press conference for "Half of a Yellow Sun" in Lagos on April 11, 2014For Oscar-nominated British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, starring in a film about Nigeria's civil war was "incredibly personal", as the conflict both affected close relatives and determined the country where he was born. His own grandfather had lived through the nightmare played out in "Half of a Yellow Sun", which premiers in Nigeria on Friday, and spent long hours years later recounting the painful memories to Ejiofor. The movie -- now showing in Britain and Australia and opening soon in the US and other countries -- is based on the best-selling novel by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie about the 1967-1970 Biafra War, which began after the eastern region tried to secede from newly independent Nigeria. "The Biafra War was a seminal part of my upbringing and my family history," said Ejiofor, 36, the first black actor from Britain nominated for a Best Actor Oscar.

Empty seats were rare Thursday night, April 24, 2014, at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, in New York, for “Poetry & the Creative Mind,” an all-star celebration presented by the Academy of American Poets. Streep recited works on parenting by Sylvia Plath and Richard Wilbur, while Tina Fey was at her comic best reading James Tate’s “The List of Famous Hats,” and Patrick Stewart chose Carl Sandburg’s “Jaws” and a personal favorite, Edna St. Vincent Millay’s “God’s World.” (Photo by Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP, File)NEW YORK (AP) — You won't often find a thousand people in evening dress attending a poetry reading.
