The call to find the poem inside—Naomi Shihab Nye is a world-famous poet born in St. Louis to a Palestinian father and American mother. She has lived in Ramallah in Palestine, the Old City in Jerusalem, and San Antonio, Texas. Naomi gives voice to her experience as an Arab-American through poems about heritage and peace that overflow with the humanitarian spirit. She is the author of many award-winning books of poems. She personally selected 19 Varieties of Gazelle for our book club. Join us for a brilliant conversation on the power of the poem inside.
