Neustadt in the News
NSK laureate Naomi Shihab Nye was recently in conversation with author Hisham Bustani and translator Thoraya El-Rayyes about experimental forms of literature and what they can, and should, give to the world.
Naomi Shihab Nye also published a beautiful story in the Houston Chronicle this week about discovering a shared story among a group of diverse women at an airport.
We are happy to announce that Neustadt laureate Rohinton Mistry will be receiving the Times of India Lifetime Achievement Award during the Times Lit Fest this weekend.
Mistry’s novel A Fine Balance has also been named as one of the six books that best exemplifies life in Bombay, as chosen by novelist Jerry Pinto.
