Poet David Mutschlecner will speak at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 20 at Mesa Public Library as part of the Library’s Authors Speak lecture series.
Mutschlecner has published six books of poetry, most recently Accord, from Otowi Crossing Press. Accord is a long poem in three parts that seeks union between idealist and realist positions; inner and outer realities are braided into one cord.
Mutschlecner’s passion is theo-poetics, where poetry shines a vivifying light into philosophical-theology, bringing life to spiritual themes in a non-dogmatic way.
The reading will focus on Accord, and his new book of prose, Poetic Faith.
