Naomi Shihab Nye (2017-18)

Known for lending fresh perspective to ordinary events, Naomi Shihab Nye is a leading American poet. Her 19 Varieties of Gazelle: Poems of the Middle East (2002) and You and Yours (2005) explore poetic responses to 9/11. Other works include the Voertman Poetry Prize-winning Hugging the Jukebox (1982), Fuel (1998) and Transfer (2011). Nye, whose Palestinian heritage informs her American perspective, also writes essays, children's fiction and translations. A book signing and reception will follow her reading.
