THATCHER, AZ—Eastern Arizona College’s Visiting Writers Series will host the final writer for this academic year, Liz Adair, on Thursday, March 5, 2009. Adair will be offering a workshop entitled “Using Family History as Fiction” at 3 p.m. in the Academic Programs Building—Room #269, and will present a reading of her work that night at 7 p.m. in the Academic Programs building—Room #271. Both events are free to the public.

Adair is a fiction writer and the author of the Spider Latham series of mystery novels. Her most recent work is Counting the Cost. In addition to writing mystery novels, Adair also teaches classes and seminars about writing family history as fiction.

“Adair’s visit should be very exciting for many people in our community,” says Ken Raines, the Visiting Writers Series coordinator and member of EAC’s English faculty. “Those interested in the connection between researching family history and writing fiction will find her presentation especially fascinating.”
