Joy Harjo has a new memoir.

though the interview is brief, I’d really suggest reading it alongside the excerpt NPR provides (and the whole book!). She has a beautiful way of storytelling. In case you don’t know who Joy Harjo is, she’s a Mvskoke Creek poet from Tulsa, OK—definitely check her work out! I love what she says in the interview about trauma:

At least I’ve had to come to that in my life, to realize that this stuff called failure, this stuff, this debris of historical trauma, family trauma, you know, stuff that can kill your spirit, is actually raw material to make things with and to build a bridge. You can use those materials to build a bridge over that which would destroy you.
