A Conversation With U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo
U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo has been busy during the pandemic.
She recently released her first spoken word album in over a decade entitled “I Pray For My Enemies.” She edited a new anthology called “Living Nations, Living Words: An Anthology of First Peoples Poetry.” And she’s set to release a new memoir this fall.
Oh, did we mention she’s also been appointed to a rare third term?
We talk with Harjo about her latest work — and what it means to be the first Native poet to serve as U.S. Poet Laureate.
