*Joy Harjo Named U.S. Poet Laureate *


Joy Harjo has championed the art of poetry—‘soul talk’ as she calls it—for
over four decades,” said Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden in a press
release. “To her, poems are ‘carriers of dreams, knowledge and wisdom,’ and
through them she tells an American story of tradition and loss, reckoning
and myth-making. Her work powerfully connects us to the earth and the
spiritual world with direct, inventive lyricism that helps us reimagine who
we are.”
