Join us for a reading by recent New York State Poet Laureate Marie Howe and a lecture on contemporary poetry by poet Joy Harjo: “Ancestors: a Mapping of Indigenous Poetry and Poets.” As part of the annual Blaney Lecture, Harjo will give an overview of the current field of young indigenous poets, and their ancestral strands of relatives. The branches extend throughout the world, before the English language.The annual Blaney Lecture was created in memory of former Academy of American Poets Board member Dorothy Gulbenkian Blaney by a gift from her estate. The event will be followed by a book signing and reception.
