Rob Casper from the Library of Congress speaks with poet Joy Harjo, who will appear at the 2012 Library of Congress National Book Festival on Sept. 22-23, on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
Joy Harjo’s Muskogee Creek heritage has had a great influence on her poetry, as have her feminist and social interests. Harjo has received many honors, including the William Carlos Williams Award and the American Indian Distinguished Achievement in the Arts Award. She has received fellowships from the Arizona Commission on the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Witter Bynner Foundation. Much of her work is autobiographical, and in her newest book, “Crazy Brave: A Memoir,” Harjo details the journey that led her to become a poet.
