    From the Middle Eastern Outreach Center list: Naomi Shihab Nye, the author and editor of thirty-three books, has been named laureate of the 2013 NSK Neustadt Prize for Children’s Literature. The NSK Prize is a $25,000 juried award sponsored by the University of Oklahoma and World Literature Today, OU’s award‐winning magazine of international literature and culture. Poet William Stafford has praised Nye’s work, stating, “Her poems combine transcendent liveliness and sparkle along with warmth and human insight. She is a champion of the literature of encouragement and heart. Reading her work enhances life.” The announcement was made at a banquet awarding Indian Canadian novelist Rohinton Mistry the 2012 Neustadt International Prize for Literature. At the banquet, R.C. Davis-Undiano, WLT’s executive director, commented that “with her powerful vision and high-quality poetry, fiction, and young-adult literature, Ms. Nye may be one of the most complete and accomplished writers in the world.”
