Book Event: Rick Springfield

I like to post book events from time to time, some in my area and some that aren't even close to me, as I know I have blog readers from all over. This event is one I have to post and hope that many will come from near and far to join in.

I am on and English listserv from the university that I graduated from and I get various emails from them periodically. It is often emails relaying success of students or graduates and what they are doing now and sometimes it is for book events. When I received the email that Rick Springfield was coming to a local library to promote his new book, I knew that I had to run as fast as I could to make sure I got a ticket to attend. The second I finished reading the email, I forwarded it to my friend Mickey. She is in love with Rick and told me once that she knew she would marry him one day. I can't wait until we get to the event and see what ensues!

I was at work when I received that email and the afternoon was blown as all I could think about what "I am going to see Rick Springfield!" I know that I am going to embarrass myself by sharing so much info here, but that email about the event brought back so many memories. Many an afternoon spent staring at the television as Dr. Noah Drake did his thing or the hours upon hours I spent in my bedroom, with the door shut, dancing and singing Jessie's Girl over and over and over.

Enough of that now and on to the details of the event. Won't you join me? If you aren't in the area and can't attend, be sure to follow the link below and purchase his new book.

Rick Springfield at Warren County Public Library, Bowling Green, KY

Singer/Actor Rick Springfield will be signing copies of his new book Late, Late at Night: a Memoir at the Warren County Public Library.

In this candid memoir which he authored himself, Grammy Award-winning pop icon Rick Springfield pulls back the curtain on his image as a bright, shiny, happy performer to share the startling story of his rise and fall and rise in music, film, and television and his lifelong battle with depression.

“We are very excited to host Rick Springfield at our library,” says library director, Lisa Rice. “This is a special treat for those of us who grew up listening to his music and watching him on television.”

The event will be held at the Main Library at 1225 State Street on Saturday, October 23 at 8:00 p.m.

Doors open at 6:00, so attendees are encouraged to arrive early to reserve their space in line.

Books will be available for purchase and signing. No memorabilia will be signed. For information about the book, visit

Tickets are free, but necessary for admittance. Free tickets are available at all Warren County Public Library locations.

  1. I saw an interview on tv with Rich Springfield and I found him to be a very interesting and deep person.
    I think this book will be on my wish list for Christmas.
