Ron Rash says he’s looking forward to connecting with former colleagues and students when he visits Tri-County Technical College next week for a book reading. Until 2003, Rash taught English at Tech. He’s now known as an award-winning poet and novelist whose novel, “Serena”, has been made into a major motion picture to be released in April. From 1:20 to 2:20 p-m Wednesday, November 6, Rash will give a reading in the Marshall Parker Auditorium on the Pendleton campus. The event is free and open to the public.
