Joy Harjo: Save America's Treasures Selection

Poetry

Interviewed by: Rebekah Presson

Catalog Number: 20121123

In this Save America's Treasures recording we revisit a 1991 interview by former New Letters on the Air host, Rebekah Presson, who talks with well known Native American poet, Joy Harjo.  Harjo reads from her book In Mad Love and War, which won both the William Carlos Williams prize from the Poetry Society of America and the Delmore Schwartz Memorial Poetry Prize. Harjo—whose memoir, Crazy Brave, was released in July 2012—makes this interview unique by sharing one of her other creative talents, playing the saxophone.
