An Evening with Poet David Mills

April 4 @ 7:00 pm

Poet David Mills Boneyarn

“An Evening with Poet David Mills” Live Poetry Reading at Middletown Township Public Library on April 4

MIDDLETOWN, NJ –The Middletown Township Public Library (MTPL) will kick off National Poetry Month with “An Evening with Poet David Mills” featuring the acclaimed author of the bestselling poetry collection Boneyarn, on April 4th in the library community room.

David Mills will read from and reflect on the creation of Boneyarn, which excavates the experiences of New York’s enslaved community in Colonial America. In his most recent poetry collection, the Bronx-based poet gives voice to those buried in the Manhattan’s Negro Burial Ground, America’s oldest and largest slave cemetery, which was open between 1712 and 1795 in lower Manhattan. The first-ever book of poems about slavery in New York, Mills’ work eulogizes 15,000 unnamed slaves and free blacks, as well as indentured whites and Native Americans in an empathetic and unflinching study of the contradictions within American history.

“An Evening with David Mills” is open to MTPL patrons as well as any who wish to attend. The event will begin at 7pm in the library’s community room on Monday, April 4th. No registration is required.
