Dine & Rhyme

Thank you to everyone who attended BOA's 22nd Annual Dine & Rhyme featuring Naomi Shihab Nye!

On Friday, October 4th, attendees of BOA’s 22nd annual Dine & Rhyme fundraiser were treated to a very special evening with poet Naomi Shihab Nye. With a focus on her newest BOA poetry publication, The Tiny Journalist (BOA, April 2019), Naomi read poems and shared stories about her personal connections to Palestine. As always, Naomi’s visit to Rochester filled us all with inspiration, hope, and new perspectives on how to create a more harmonious world.
