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.”

Naomi also talks about her father, the late accomplished Palestinian American Journalist Aziz Shihab. Aziz Shihab worked at the Dallas Morning News and was a pioneer in American Arab Journalism in the 1970s and 1980s.
Naomi and her family lived in ferguson, Missouri, the location of a recent flash of racial conflict where a police officer shot and killed a young Black teenager, Michael Brown.

At 4:35 pm during the show we discuss with writer and journalist Ali Younes whether or not the Palestinian government should pursue war crimes charges committed by Israel’s military and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with the International Criminal Court. We also discuss anti-Palestinian and racist American Jewish comedian, Joan Rivers. 
 
Live in Chicago on WCEV 1450 AM Radio and live online at www.YahalaVoice.com … all shows are also podcast at the website The Arab Daily News at www.TheArabDailyNews.com. The show is rebroadcast on Yahala Voice every Monday at 11 am CST.
