Joy Harjo Live in Seattle

Event Description

“Harjo’s poetry is celebrated for its insightful attention to the spiritual and natural worlds. In lines that can be deceptively simple or strikingly complex, she often explores the persistence of myth in contemporary experience.” – The Washington Post

We’re excited to partner with Seattle Arts and Lectures to present Joy Harjo, an internationally renowned performer and writer of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation. She served three terms as the 23rd Poet Laureate of the United States from 2019-2022, the first Native American to receive the honor, and she is the winner of Yale’s 2023 Bollingen Prize for American Poetry.

Harjo has written ten books of poetry, including the highly acclaimed Weaving Sundown in a Scarlet Light: Fifty Poems for Fifty Years, several plays and children’s books, and two memoirs, Crazy Brave and Poet Warrior.

Register to attend via Seattle Arts and Lectures.

Co-presented with Seattle Arts and Lectures.
