19 Varieties of Gazelles:Poems of the Middle East

Hey readers,

Today we are starting the book 19 Varities of Gazelles: Poems of the Middle East. The author, Naomi Shibab Nai, heard many stories of the Middle East when she was a girl. When the prejudice of Arabs came around after 9/11, she felt compelled to share the stories of the Middle East with Americans since she, herself was an Arab-America, so dive into this book and read about the many characters of the Middle East as time goes by. There is Fowzi, the girl who always wins playing dominoes, children in velvet dresses, Sitti Kharda who never lost hope, and many more. Travel to the Middle East with us while reading these poems.

~Julia and Margaret
