Attnention Albuquerque Locals: Joy Harjo and Tanaya Winder Reading This Saturday at UNM Bookstore!
Well, first of all, there's the exciting news that Joy Harjo is going to teach a Master Class in Poetry at this year's Taos Conference. Yay.
Then, there's the exciting news that Joy, along with UNM MFA student Tanaya Winder, has a new book out: "Soul Talk, Soul Language: Conversations with Joy Harjo." The book uses all kinds of different forms--interviews, columns, essays--to explore, among other themes, Joy's artistic output as a poet and musician and the influence of her tribal heritage.
And, finally, the headline: Joy and Tanaya will be appearing at the UNM Bookstore this Saturday, October 29th (at the intersection of Central and Yale) at 1 pm, to read and sign books. They will also both appear at Alamosa Bookstore (8810 Holly Ave. NE, Ste. D) on Sunday, the 30th, at 2:00 pm.
Congratulations, Joy and Tanaya! Everyone else: go hear those brililant ladies read!
