Welcome to the 46th episode of “This One’s Dedicated to…” — and our first-ever in-person episode, recorded live at the 2022 San Antonio Book Festival! — in which Jennifer Ziegler and I share our quick conversation with author and Young People’s Poet Laureate Naomi Shihab Nye about the dedication she wrote for her middle grade novel The Turtle of Michigan (Greenwillow Books/HarperCollins, March 2022).

Special thanks to Chad Shugart and Benjamin Cisneros of the Veterans Memorial High School Media Team for recording this episode!
