A conversation with authors Robin Miller and James Walter Miller, whose book,  Rhymes of a Faithful Journey,  is a collection of narrative quilts and poetry that carries the reader on a journey through African American history from slavery to presidency. The writing is emotional, descriptive, and thought-provoking.

The accompanying quilts are as powerful as the poems, making the experience of the poetry visually stimulating. As a whole, this book is a work of art unto itself. Surprisingly, the medium is not fabric. These mixed media collage quilts have been uniquely created by Robin, who currently has a featured exhibit at the Falmouth Museums on the Green through February 25 and will speak there on February 17.  Click here for details.

Robin also will be appearing on February 1 at 6 pm. at the Cape Cod Museum of Art, where she will speak about the influence of Jazz on art. Click here for details.
