Exciting New Award!

It is a privilege to have provided a blurb for this new award in honor of esteemed author Naomi Shihab Nye.

This essential prize will remind Arab Canadians and Arab Americans that our stories have a place in the world. Naomi Shihab Nye was ahead of her time with her brilliant books for young readers. Growing up in Canada during the seventies and eighties, there were few books with characters who looked like me or came from my Arab homeland, and fewer still by Arab writers. This award in Nye’s honor is certain to inspire a surge in creativity to answer the needs of our own children and share our culture with others.

Spread the news and start writing.

Many thanks!
