This month, Mary talks with poet Sean Hill. Sean is currently on faculty with University of Montana in Missoula. His path to that post began in Milledgeville, GA where he spent his childhood fascinated with the workings of nature. That homeland remains a big part of the stories Sean tells of his family and community from enslavement to today. Sean has lived in Minnesota, Texas, and Alaska, and has traveled the world. Echoes of those journeys mix in with Sean's particular brand of truth telling to render poems of justice, awe and honor.
You can read Sean’s poetry by visiting his website https://www.seanhillpoetry.com/. Pick up one of his books, BLOOD TIES & BROWN LIQUOR published by University of Georgia Press, or DANGEROUS GOODS published by Milkweed Editions.
