Reception and book signing for John Leax
October 4, 2012 | 08:00 PM to 09:00 PM
Emeritus professor John Leax, will be signing books during a reception honoring his new collection of poems, Recluse Freedom. In Recluse Freedom, a collection of new poems written from 1990 to 2010, John Leax offers a human history of family, community, and nation in conversation with a spiritual history—imagined, experienced and revealed. Readers who have already discovered Leax will welcome this new book. And, for others, Recluse Freedom provides a fresh and rewarding introduction to this poet of the "still, small voice." "His best poems to date," writes reviewer Thom Satterlee in Books & Culture.
