Visiting the 23rd Floor: Naomi Shihab Nye

Naomi Shihab Nye received a Story Power Award from the great LitWorld organization this week at a gala in New York City. Naomi and fellow honoree Walter Dean Myers wowed the crowd of hundreds at the very beautiful Prince George Ballroom. Naomi was also here to teach a poetry workshop for the DreamYard Project in the Bronx. So, she was busy but we did find time to get her into the new-age (and very blue) Harper video studio to read from her upcoming book which we are considering calling There Is No Long Distance Now: Very Short Stories. Naomi and Virginia have been working together for twenty years now so they are thinking of getting matching necklaces.
