Joy Harjo 

Friday, March 18, 2022


Lecture Begins at 7:00 PM EST 

Zoom information will be sent several times prior to the event to the email during ticket registration. Zoom room will open at 6:50 PM EST. 



As part of our Centennial Speaker Series, United States Poet Laureate Joy Harjo will take the stage to discuss how she tackles topics of cultural relevance through her work.


As the first Native American to hold the position of Poet Laureate and only the second person to serve three terms in the role, Harjo provides a unique lens through which others can learn about indigenous people. Harjo will engage the audience in a fireside-chat-style discussion, during which the community is encouraged to ask her questions about her work, experiences, and perspectives. This event is made possible through the Museum’s partnership with Kent State University's Wick Poetry Center and the NEA Big Read Northeast Ohio, a community reading program and series of related events focusing on Harjo’s book of poetry An American Sunrise. 


We are excited to offer both an in-person and virtual option for this event. Please make sure you are selecting the preferred option when purchasing your tickets. The virtual event will be held via Zoom; invitations/links will be sent multiple times to registrants. Please provide your most up-to-date email address when registering to ensure you receive information about the event.
