Podcast Interview: Naomi Shihab Nye on books, writing and journalism
By Ray Hanania
This week on Talk of the Town Radio (Sept. 5, 2014) I interview author and writer Naomi Shihab Nye. The show is broadcast every Friday at 4 pm CST on WCEV 1450 AM and on YahalaVoice.com radio. Naomi discusses her writing and why it is important for American Arabs to tell their story, which is what she tries to do in her many books.
Naomi discusses two of her books, “Habibi,” the story of a Palestinian American girl who returns to Palestine with her Palestinian father, American mother and her brother. And her newest book, “The Turtle of Oman.”
