MOUNT VERNON— Creative Expressions, one of Brewton-Parker College’s newest fields of academic study, hosted a reading featuring writer Robert Mickles Sept. 23 in Gates Hall Auditorium. Mickles read a passage from his book “Blood Kin”.

Robert Mickles presents his book, Blood Kin.

Published in 2000, the book chronicles the life of a Civil War-period slave, Robert; his mother, Ada; the plantation owner and his wife, Mr. and Mrs. Jones; and, Mrs. Jones’ hot-tempered son, Isaac, who brings about hate and violence on the plantation. Mickles told his audience that the motivation behind his book was to share the story of his family’s past with others, and with his own family as well. He also revealed plans to release a new book soon to give more details concerning the life of Ada. 


After finishing his reading, Mickles signed books for BPC students and other audience members and gave advice to aspiring writers. This Creative Expressions reading was made possible by the generous donations of longtime BPC supporters, George and Sarah Chapman of Vidalia.


Brewton-Parker College is the only accredited four-year Christian college in south Georgia.
