Poetry. "Some of you may have encountered a wee chapbook of paragraphs from State Street Press called MINT that was first printed in 1991. If you were one of the people who liked that collection, or especially one of the generous teachers who used it in your classes, I thank you. This gathering contains some (not all) of those same pieces as well as more recent ones"--Naomi Shihab Nye, about MINT SNOWBALL. Born of a Palestinian father and an American mother, Naomi Shihab Nye is the author of seven poetry collections. She travels nationally and internationally as a visiting writer. Her RED SUITCASE and FUEL are also available from SPD.
