In collaboration with Blue Hill Books, MWPA is pleased to host a conversation between poets Stuart Kestenbaum and Naomi Shihab Nye on Zoom. Of Kestenbaum’s newest book, things seemed to be breaking, a collection of blackout poems just published by Deerbrook Editions, writer and artist Maria Kalman says, “In the less is definitely more department, we have arrived at perfection. Stuart Kestenbaums’s extracted poems are beacons of tender, funny, minimalist illumination.” Naomi Shihab Nye describes herself as a “wandering poet” and has spent more than 40 years traveling the country and the world to lead writing workshops and inspiring students of all ages. This is sure to be a wide-ranging, indelible conversation.
To order one of Naomi Shihab Nye’s books or a signed copy of Stuart’s latest book, please visit Blue Hill Books.
