Celebrate National Poetry Month at this in-person poetry reading and workshop with visiting poet Naomi Shihab Nye.

Naomi Shihab Nye was born to a Palestinian father and an American mother of German and Swiss descent, growing up in St. Louis, Jerusalem, and San Antonio. Nye is the author/editor of over 30 volumes and has won countless awards for her work. She draws her work from her Palestinian-American heritage, using her writing to attest to our shared humanity. Nye’s work also derives from her travels to various countries around the world. Her most recent book is “Cast Away: Poems for Our Time” (2020).
