Rick Wayne In The Hot Chair?

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

May is fast com­ing to a close but not be­fore Rick Wayne takes the Chair. He will be the fea­tured writer for the Saint Lu­cia Writ­ers Fo­rum’s reg­u­lar month-end read­ing ac­tiv­ity. Rick is one of the writ­ers most re­quested by fo­rum mem­bers seek­ing to learn from his wide ex­pe­ri­ence. Rick Wayne’s rep­u­ta­tion pre­cedes him. He is a par­tic­u­larly harsh critic of gov­ern­ments and their poli­cies.

Rick is also fa­mous in the health and fit­ness world hav­ing cap­tured the ti­tles of Mr Uni­verse and Mr World on more than one oc­ca­sion. He has trav­elled widely and resided in sev­eral first world coun­tries, un­til fi­nally he de­cided to return to his home­land to con­trib­ute to its de­vel­op­ment. He and his wife Mae, also once a big name in com­pet­i­tive body­build­ing in the United States, es­tab­lished the Star Pub­lish­ing Com­pany which is in its 30th year of op­er­a­tion.

Mr Wayne has au­thored sev­eral books re­lat­ing to body­build­ing and pol­i­tics. He is best known here for his po­lit­i­cal ti­tles: It’ll Be Al­right In the Morn­ing, Fool­ish Vir­gins, and Lapses & In­fe­lic­i­ties. He will be read­ing ex­cerpts from the last men­tioned when he takes the Chair at 7 p.m. on Tuesday evening, May 30, at the Cen­tral Li­brary, in Cas­tries. Rick will also en­ter­tain ques­tions from the au­di­ence.

The event is free and open to the pub­lic. The Fo­rum con­tin­ues to host the event in honour of the late No­bel lau­re­ate Derek Walcott. It is an event that the late Sir Derek twice at­tended.

The pub­lic is kindly in­vited to at­tend this aus­pi­cious event and is en­cour­aged to be on time and sup­port the con­tin­ued work of the Writ­ers Fo­rum which turns 20 next year.

Star Pub­lisher Rick Wayne will be the fea­tured writer on May 30 as part of the Saint Lu­cia Writ­ers Fo­rum’s reg­u­lar month-end read­ing ac­tiv­ity.
