BOA Poet.[/caption] We're thrilled to announce that BOA will publish Naomi Shihab Nye's new poetry collection, Transfer, in September 2011! Naomi is a long-time BOA author and a bona fide American  poetry treasure. If you ever get the chance to hear her read... take it. We guarantee that her voice and presence will stay with you for many, many moons afterwards. Here's a little taste of what we're talking about. The Academy of American Poets just posted a clip of Naomi reading the poem "Alive" from the Transfer collection. Enjoy! [Naomi Shihab Nye reads "Alive"]
