A member of the Muscogee Creek nation, Harjo has written nine books of poetry, as well as a memoir, “Crazy Brave.” She also plays the saxophone and has released seven albums, including last year’s “I Pray for My Enemies.”

Joy Harjo joined Diane in December 2021 as part of the Diane Rehm Book Club.
