Unless otherwise noted events are free and open to the public.  Books will be available at in-person events for sale and signing. Books are always available online here.

Friday, March 19, 2021 – 7:00 p.m. (eastern daylight time)

Online Reading hosted by White Whale Bookstore – RSVP Required

I’ll be reading with the extraordinary poets — Joan E. Bauer, Celeste Gainey and Arlene Weiner – in celebration of Joan’s new book The Camera Artist.  RSVP’s are required, so please RSVP HERE  to receive an on-line link to this free Zoom event.  There’s more information about all the readers and Joan’s exceptional book at the same link.  

The event is free, but donations are encouraged to support White Whale Bookstore’s good work in hosting this reading. (If you choose to donate, you don’t need to request a ticket as well, since the ticket is already included.)  Some similar online events have filled to capacity, so you might want to register early.


Rick has read widely across the country, connecting not only with literary audiences but also with listeners new to poetry. To schedule a reading, campus visit, or informal poetry conversation in home or at your congregation, click on Let’s Connect.
