Writers Read featuring Paul Richmond, Thomas Ratte and Vanessa Query



The LAVA Center (324 Main St., Greenfield, MA 01301, Greenfield MA)

The LAVA Center hosts a monthly series, Writers Read, on the second Wednesday every month. Coordinated by Lindy Whiton, the series brings in local writers and a couple of outside surprises. $5 suggested donation.

Reading in March will be Paul Richmond, Thomas Ratte, and Vanessa Query.

Paul Richmond is best described as political, deadpan and wryly humorous delivered in his own style. He has been called, “Assassin of Apathy – power of words / humor – on the unthinkable, the unsolvable, to analyze to digest to give birth to creativity and hope.” https://paulrichmond.myportfolio.com

Thomas Ratte has been writing poetry for years and has always been considered a wordsmith. His bachelor’s degree is in Fine Arts from UMass, Amherst, but on the way he studied writing with Wil Roberts. For the past year or so he has enjoyed a resurgence of writing in his life.
