The Merwin Conservancy presents Joy Harjo in the Green Room

$10 – $25

The Merwin Conservancy presents Joy Harjo in the Green Room 

Thursday, January 30, 2020; McCoy Studio Theater; 7:00 pm

“I turn and return to Harjo’s poetry for her breathtaking complex witness and for her world-remaking language.” —Adrienne Rich

The Merwin Conservancy presents an intimate evening with current U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo in the Green Room, an arts and ecology salon series hosted by the Conservancy with a mission to foster a reverence for language, nature, and imagination. This event is part of a special “Memorial Series” of the Green Room, held in honor of the organization’s founder, the late W.S. Merwin. Harjo is the first Native American to be named U.S. Poet Laureate. Of Harjo, Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden said, “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.”

The Memorial Series of the Green Room is presented by Aqua Aston Hospitality and is made possible with the generous support of the Atherton Family Foundation and Casa deFlores. All profits from the event benefit the local nonprofit Merwin Conservancy.

Tickets: $25 & $10/special student price w/ID (plus applicable fees). All attendees are invited to stay for the post-event hosted reception included in the ticket price.

Tickets on sale Saturday, September 14
