Poetry Center docent Bonnie Wehle leads a Shop Talk on the work of Naomi Shihab Nye, who reads for the Poetry Center on April 17 at the Phoenix Art Museum and on April 18 in Tucson.
Shop Talks are free, informal, one-hour discussion groups focused on the work of a poet who will be reading at the Poetry Center. No advance knowledge of the poet or works discussed is needed. Each Shop Talk begins with a mini-lecture on the featured author, followed by a conversation about the author and the work. A study packet containing biographical information, excerpts, and criticism is made available at the Shop Talk. Discussions take place at 6:00 p.m. in the Dorothy Rubel Room at the Poetry Center.
