A note from Naomi Shihab Nye

31 Oct 2014

Dear Friends of Humanities in New Mexico,

I am so excited to see you soon and meet some new friends in your brilliant State of Clarity, as I always think of NM.

Clear wide skies! Clear expanses! Clear light! Clear thinking!

Will be sharing poems, a few brief excerpts from my new book THE TURTLE OF OMAN, and talking a bit about what reading and writing and the pleasures of humanities pursuits give to our lives.

Please come even if you think you don't like poetry. I'll read a little story just for you. It happened in the Albuquerque Airport and has mysteriously become one of my most-requested pieces in the last few years.

Thanks for all you do to connect people over there, and thanks for inviting me.

See you soon - Naomi Shihab Nye over in old San Antonio, Texas

Please join us on Friday November 14th! The reading and discussion will begin at 7:30pm (doors open at 7pm) at the KiMo Theatre. The reading is free and open to the public. Prior to the reading, please join us for a reception at the Hotel Andaluz from 5pm-7pm. The reception will allow you the opportunity to meet and engage with Naomi. Tickets for the reception can be purchased under the link in the left side column, "2014 Annual Convocation"

We hope to see you all there!
