Achieving greatness doesn’t happen by standing still.
With that in mind, it’s obvious that Lewis Mundt has been running full speed since he left Osakis. He will be back to share his accomplishments with a book reading at Cherry Street Books in Alexandria Saturday, August 28, at 7 p.m.
Actually, the 2008 Osakis High School graduate and newly published author prefers skipping or maybe a happy jaunt as he explores the streets of St. Paul and Hamline University, where he will begin his third year of study this fall.
“You better close that window; they say it’s gonna rain tonight” is the latest collection by Minnesota author Mundt, and he is proud to be bringing it to Alexandria as part of a small series of readings across the state.
Exploring the themes of human interaction and emotion, this collection of poetry and short prose has been assembled and distributed completely by the author.
For this “homecoming” event, Mundt will be joined by fellow area author and mentor David Bengtson, giving a reading, leading a question-and-answer discussion, and talking about his experiences in self-publishing.
While Mundt has been writing for about a decade, this collection is filled with his latest work, within the past two years since moving away from Osakis to St. Paul.
Mundt said he’s doing “crazy and exciting things” in the big city, but still likes to keep in touch with the happenings at home.
“I’m looking forward to seeing people and sharing my work,” he said. “There are so many things a person can do and you don’t have to wait for it to come to you.”
