Richard Dixon Featured at Second Sunday Poetry
Second Sunday Poetry will feature Oklahoma City poet Richard Dixon reading from recent work at the Norman Depot, 200 South Jones Avenue, beginning at 2:00 pm on March 9. There is no admission charge.
Dixon is a longtime transplant to Oklahoma from the coal mines of southwestern Pennsylvania. A retired high-school special education teacher and tennis coach, he now works part-time at a municipal tennis center where he is known to swing a mean racquet. Dixon “came to writing by way of a dairy farm” he says.
His poems and essays have been published in Crosstimbers, Westview, Uncle Walt’s Corner of the Long Islander, and the 2012 Texas Poetry Calendar. His work has also appeared in numerous anthologies including two Woody Guthrie compilations: Travelin’ Music (2011) and Elegant Rage (2012.) He has been the featured reader at several poetry venues.
Enjoy “Generations”, the paintings of father and son Brad and Nathan Price, while attending poetry in the Depot Gallery, made possible in part by grants from the Oklahoma Arts Council and the Norman Arts Council.
