Michigan Literary Network Blogtalk Radio~June 26, 2013

M L LieblerGuess who’s coming to Michigan Literary Network Blog talk radio today? Can’t guess? Well, I’ll tell you! We’ve got the awesome M. L. Liebler! Who is M. L. Liebler you ask? M.L. Leibler is an award-winning poet whose latest book is “Wide Awake in Someone Else’s Dream.” “Wide Awake in Someone Else’s Dream” is a collection of traveling poems written in Russia, Israel, Germany, and China that take the reader on a contemplative journey through both the geography of these countries and their cultures as well as through the inward mind of the narrator. As Liebler travels the world, he wrestles with themes of self-discovery, spirituality, identity, and change, and renders poems in his signature raw and defiant style. Thoughtful and direct, these poems look toward beauty and contemplation in a bitter world that has become fraught with mistrust and misunderstanding.

Want to know more about M. L. Liebler listen in today at 5:30pm. You can also check him out at mlliebler.com.
