DIXON – Sauk Valley Community College will host a free spoken word poetry event with Kyla Lacey, aka The Rising Phoenix, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Feb. 11 in Mathis Theatre.

Lacey, of Orlando, Fla., began writing poetry as a fifth-grader. Her inspiration comes from her own triumphs and tragedies, colored by her good-humored personality. 

The University of Central Florida graduate has released two CDs: “AWay with Words” and “Lady Brings the Blues.”
