Meet the Artist: Poet Joe Mills Discusses Poems From "This Miraculous Turning"

8:45am Apr 27, 2015
Poet Joe Mills.

Poet Joseph Mills’ most recent book is titled This Miraculous Turning, but this month, Press 53 is releasing a second edition of his excellent collection of poems called Angels, Thieves, and Winemakers. Joe says he’s added new poems, done some pruning and revised the remaining ones. 

In This Miraculous Turning, Joe shares stories at points hilarious and sublime about, among other things, race in America as experienced in his biracial family. Joe and his wife who are both white are raising their two African American children in Winston-Salem.
