Local Poet

1. Naomi Nye

Naomi Shihab Nye — much renowned, awarded and revered for her novels, short stories and (especially) poetry — may have been born in St. Louis and raised as a citizen of the world, but, as a Trinity grad and longtime Saytown resident, she belongs to us. This is where she works, and works to uplift the literary community, when she's not educating folks around the world. This is where you might run into her at the grocery store or wandering around King William. This is where she's chosen to raise her kids. And, you know what? We're damn proud to have her. Recently highlighted by the San Antonio Book Festival, Nye's latest offering is The Turtle of Oman, a touching children's novel set in the Middle East.
