2012 USU Faculty Author Spotlight

The Merrill-Cazier Library is showcasing all of the 2012 Faculty Authors and their books in the Richard Schockmel USU Collections Room on the 2nd floor of the Library. We are proud of USU's faculty authors! This week we are highlighting:

Michael Sowder,

Associate Professor, English DepartmentSowder, Michael, 2012. House Under the Moon. Piscataway, NJ: Transaction Publishers.

Through transcendent, lyric verse, these poems explore the spiritual struggle for harmony between the contemporary and contemplative life. Blending several religious traditions including Buddhism, Hinduism, Christian mysticism, and Sufism, Sowder's poems achieve the essence of devotion both familial and divine as he graciously takes readers with him along the path to enlightenment.
