All the Books Show: Episode 115 – Interview with Naomi Shihab Nye

We had another author guest on the podcast and this time it was poet Naomi Shihab Nye! Neat!

90136d8f86e957dca2bad726522e2faa-the-turtles-chapter-booksDuring her talk at the David A. Howe Public Library, she spoke about revising poetry even after it’s been published, about being political vs. being rude and wondered what a state motto has to say about it’s state. It was a great night and her interview on the podcast gives you a peak into why. We also talk about previous guests to the library, such as Archer Mayor, Joyce Carol Oates and Alexander McCall Smith. What a lineup!

The rest of the show, we talk about Gwendy’s Button Box, the New York Times Best Sellers list and partake in our regular shenanigans. What a funny word “shenanigans” is. It’s tricky to say out loud, it’s spelled differently than one might think. It really does contain multitudes.

See you next week, podcats!
