Join Well-Read Black Girl Book Club! for a reading group discussion of Crazy Brave by Joy Harjo.

Crazy Brave will be offered at 20% off the month before and the month of the reading group both online and by phone.



A “raw and honest” (Los Angeles Review of Books) memoir from the first Native American Poet Laureate of the United States.


In this transcendent memoir, grounded in tribal myth and ancestry, music and poetry, Joy Harjo details her journey to becoming a poet. Born in Oklahoma, the end place of the Trail of Tears, Harjo grew up learning to dodge an abusive stepfather by finding shelter in her imagination, a deep spiritual life, and connection with the natural world. Narrating the complexities of betrayal and love, Crazy Brave is a haunting, visionary memoir about family and the breaking apart necessary in finding a voice.
