Rick Wayne takes the Chair

May is 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. He is one of the most requested writers that forum members are looking to welcoming and hopefully learn a lot from this experience.

Rick Wayne’s notoriety precedes him. He is a harsh critic of governments and their policies.

Rick is known in the health and fitness world having captured the title of Mr Universe. Mr Wayne has travelled and resided in several first world countries and chose to return to his homeland to contribute to its development have established the Star Publishing Company with his wife Mae.

Mr Wayne has several books to his name, included some on bodybuilding and politics. He is best known for his political titles, It’ll Be Alright In the Morning and Foolish Virgins. His latest book is Lapses & Infelicities. He will be reading excerpts from his books on the night and will entertain questions from the audience.

The event will be held at the Castries Central Library on Tuesday May 30 at 7pm. It 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 which Sir Derek had the privilege of attending twice before his passing.

    Exactly anonymous, they are so quick to heap scorn on ppl they don’t like, especially if the person is not supporting their quasi gods. That they don’t talk from a factual point.
    The fact is Rick has made a mane for himself in bodybuilding, writing and media, how many of us can say that for ourselves, that certainly is not a joke!!!!

    Rick is a breath of fresh air. tells it like it is without sweet coating it with B.S. He’s a straight shooter. Also has an entertaining talk show. Great stuff!

    A man i grew up watching on tv. from seeing him in person following party campaigns in Choiseul back in 97 when i was a ten year old boy. to the talk show Straight Up! to Talk!.. as a boy watching his talk shows, i had my dictionary at hand just so i could find the meaning of those big unfamiliar words coming out of his mouth. But years went by and distractions of manhood made me lost track of him.. But its good to see him up and running and still going strong… Rick! though life is short ST Lucia is quite small. we shall cross paths sometime.. take care man.

      I think this is you in a nutshell – Nobody knows your name but a small bunch of your accomplices and cronies. That fact makes you feel as insignificant as you are.

    Before Rick says anything he needs to explain to us Lucian’s why he refused to tell the world that he was Lucian when he was making his fame . Also when he changed his name from Larry Carrasco from Laborer . All of you bugging up Rick I wonder how many of you know his story big mister universe who was ashamed to say where he’s from when asked when he was making all his fame now he wanna come back to the same country he was ashamed to tell people he was from during his glory days . Rick please I need u to clear up that part before u can be considered another St Lucian icon.
