Purpose


Poet Naomi Shihab Nye, the author and editor of over 20 volumes, leads a round- table session for adults that explores how poetry can help us navigate the different phases of our lives—from youth to old age—while examining such issues as absence and presence, loss and discovery. Nye will share her own work about the death of her father and her experience editing an anthology of poems by young poets.
