A visionary poet of the Muscogee Creek Nation, Joy Harjo's wide-ranging body of work includes the landmark poetry collection She Had Some Horses and the acclaimed memoir Crazy Brave. Celebrated for its insightful attention to the spiritual and natural worlds, her poetry tells an American story of tradition and loss, reckoning and myth-making, "full of celebration, crisis, brokenness and healing" (The New York Times). She has received the prestigious Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize, National Book Award and many others. Her newest collection, An American Sunrise, was published in August. In June, she became the first Native American to be named United States Poet Laureate.
