“I turn and return to Harjo’s poetry for her breathtaking complex witness and for her world-remaking language.” —Adrienne Rich


We are honored to welcome Joy Harjo, internationally known award-winning poet, writer, performer, and saxophone player of the Mvskoke/Creek Nation. She is the author of nine books of poetry and a memoir. In 2019, Joy Harjo was appointed the 23rd United States Poet Laureate, the first Native American to hold the position. Joy Harjo’s nine books of poetry include An American Sunrise, Conflict Resolution for Holy Beings, How We Became Human: New and Selected Poems, and She Had Some Horses.

This reading is made possible through the generous support of Dominican University alumna Patricia Tabet '52. Co-presented by the St. Catherine of Siena Center and the English Department of Dominican University's Rosary College of Arts and Sciences.
