HHSL Book Club: Conflict resolution for holy beings : Poems by Joy Harjo

HHSL Book Club: Conflict resolution for holy beings : Poems by Joy Harjo

Join the HHSL Passport Book club for a casual online discussion of the book, "Conflict resolution for holy beings : poems" by Joy Harjo

    In these poems, the joys and struggles of the everyday are played against the grinding politics of being human. Beginning in a hotel room in the dark of a distant city, we travel through history and follow the memory of the Trail of Tears from the bend in the Tallapoosa River to a place near the Arkansas River. Stomp dance songs, blues, and jazz ballads echo throughout. Lost ancestors are recalled. Resilient songs are born, even as they grieve the loss of their country.

All members of the Penn State Health/College of Medicine community are welcome to participate!
