Naomi Shihab Nye on PBS Newshour

[caption id="attachment_369" align="alignleft" width="150" caption=""]Naomi Shihab Nye. BOA Poet.[/caption] We are so excited to share that Naomi Shihab Nye was featured on PBS NewsHour's occasional series on poets and poetry yesterday,  speaking on teaching, storytelling, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and her latest collection Transfer, which BOA published last fall. You can watch the feature here. Nye travels all around the country giving readings and lessons to young poets, readers, and even audiences without any particular interest in the form. Check out the extended interview here to hear about a provocative session with a ladies' luncheon group that demonstrates Nye's ability to turn our attentions to places we've never seen.
