We will be accompanied by ancient songs
And will celebrate together
In her new memoir, Poet Warrior, U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo recounts a luminous journey of becoming through stories of ancestors and family, the poetry and music that she first encountered as a child, and the messengers of a changing earth.
“Joy Harjo has always been able to see with more than her eyes. Her writing is a testament to this gift,” writes Sandra Cisneros. “Her memoir honors her own journey as well as those who fell along the wayside. Her hero’s journey is a gift for all those struggling to make their way.”
