U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo reads and performs her poetry, which she describes as “carriers of dreams, knowledge and wisdom,” telling an American story of tradition and loss, reckoning and myth-making. She is a member of the Mvskoke/Creek Nation and the first Native American poet to hold the position of U.S. Poet Laureate. Her most recent collection of poetry is An American Sunrise.

David Kwan is the editor and producer of Binah, featuring remarkable artists and thinkers who’ve come to speak at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco as part of their Arts & Ideas program.
