THATCHER, AZ—Ken Raines, English instructor at Eastern Arizona College, will recite some of his nationally published poetry at a reading entitled “Divisions of the Tongue” from 7 to 8 p.m. on November 20, 2008, at the Great Kiva of Discovery Park Campus. The free event is family-friendly and open to anyone in the community.

Raines is a renowned poet and has recently been published in several nationally acclaimed poetry magazines. In addition to his excellent writings, he has also garnered applause for his talents in editing and producing student and faculty literary publications at the community college level. He is currently serving as editor for two EAC literary magazines, Voice, which is comprised entirely of student work, and Creosote. He is also the editor of EAC’s annual yearbook, in addition to teaching classes in English and creative writing at EAC.

Harry Swanson, dean of Discovery Park Campus, encourages everyone to attend this free event. “Raines’ poetry is a delight for the mind, so don’t miss this opportunity to watch and listen to a true master of verse,” says Swanson. “We’ll even be serving hot chocolate at intermission.”
