Poets Joy Harjo and Patricia Smith
Two of today's most dynamic and acclaimed poets, Joy Harjo and Patricia Smith, come to SPACE for an electrifying evening of spoken word, live music and performance. Albuquerque-based Harjo draws on her Mvskoke-Creek heritage to bring stories of transcendence and redemption to life. Chicago-native Smith's 2008 work, Blood Dazzler, a National Book Award finalist, chronicles the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans in riveting, fierce style. Smith and Harjo are joined by local poets Martin Steingesser, Gil Helmick and a live backing band led by Kyle Hardy. Co-Presented with Port Veritas Spoken Word and Near-Sighted Productions. Held in association with the USM Stonecoast MFA Program.
