The Prolific Pen Of Naomi Shihab Nye

Feb 10, 2017

It might be a challenging question to ask Naomi Shihab Nye where she's from.

Nye is a poet-novelist-essayist, born in St. Louis, but raised in both San Antonio and Jerusalem.  Yes, THE Jerusalem. 

Nye is Palestinian-American, and her large body of work reflects the many influences in her life, from West Texas to the Middle East. 

She visits Ashland for a speaking engagement tonight (February 13th), and drops by the studio for an advance on the evening. 

We just try to fit a sampling of her skills and wisdom into a single hour.
