Dr. Hill was a semi finalist for the 2015 Crab Orchard Series in Poetry Open Competition. About the book: Vi-zə-bəl Teks-chərs (Visible Textures) is a chapbook project of poems that incorporate digital DaMarisCover3.2.15 (3)humanities methods in creative expressions. The poems are inspired by GPS technologies. The series contrasts details and physical spaces associated with an 1854 Indian Reservation map of Kansas and a 2013 highway map of Kansas. Some poems detail territories allocated to Indigenous American Nations. About the author: DaMaris B. Hill has a keen interest in the work of Toni Morrison and theories regarding “rememory” as a philosophy and aesthetic practice. She is inspired by the anxieties of contemporary existence that are further complicated by fears that some linear narratives of history fail to be inclusive, stating “I belong to a generation of people who do not fear death but are afraid that we may be forgotten.” Currently, Dr. DaMaris B. Hill serves the University of Kentucky as an Assistant Professor of Creative Writing and African American and Africana Studies.

    10. Robert Gipe reads from and signs, “Trampoline.”
      2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

      “A story that left my heart at once warmed and shattered, Trampoline rides the razor’s edge of raw beauty. This is Appalachia shone with a light uniquely its own. I dare say Robert Gipe has invented his own genre.” — David Joy, author of Where All Light Tends to Go The Morris Book Shop is happy to host Robert Gipe as he signs his debut novel, Trampoline. About the book: Trampoline, a debut novel by Robert Gipe, is set in the coalfields of Kentucky. Its narrator is Dawn Jewell, a teenager who recounts the turbulent time when her grandmother Cora led her into a fight to stop a mountaintop removal coal mine. Dawn’s father, Delbert, is dead, killed in the mines, leaving her mother, Tricia, a grieving drunk. Trampoline follows Dawn as she decides whether to save a mountain or save herself; be ruled by love or ruled by anger; remain in the land of her birth or run for her life. Trampoline includes more than two hundred drawings that punctuate the narrative in a unique, dramatic, and moving way and amplify Dawn’s telling of her story. About the author:  Here is a biographical sketch Robert Gipe wrote for Still, the online journal that serialized the first six chapters of Trampoline: I was born in North Carolina in 1963 and was raised in Kingsport, Tennessee, a child of the Tennessee Eastman Company, Pals Sudden Service, and the voice of the Vols, John Ward. My dad was a warehouse supervisor and my mom a registered nurse. I went to college at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina where I was a DJ for a student radio station I helped start. I went to graduate school at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and got a masters in American Studies. I worked as a pickle packer, a forklift driver, and eventually landed a job as marketing and educational services director for Appalshop in Whitesburg, Kentucky in 1989. At Appalshop I worked with public schoolteachers on arts and education projects. Since 1997, I have been the director of the Appalachian Program at Southeast Kentucky Community & Technical College in Cumberland, Kentucky. I am one of the producers of Higher Ground, a series of community musical dramas based on oral histories and grounded in discussion of local issues. I am also a faculty coordinator of the Crawdad student arts series. I have had fiction published in Appalachian Heritage and have attended the Appalachian Writers Workshop in Hindman every year since 2006. I have been working on the characters in Trampoline since 2006. The narrator is Dawn Jewell. She lives in a coalfield county in eastern Kentucky, and is in high school when Escape Velocity takes place. She’s having a rough go of it. The sound of people telling one another stories is the most precious sound in the world. Trying to catch that sound on the page is my favorite part of writing. Most of my favorite writing–Flannery O’Connor’s stories, the novels of Richard Price and Charles Portis–seems to me written by ear. When writing is going best for me, it’s like taking dictation from voices I hear in my head. As far as the drawings go, I have drawn pictures all my life, much longer than I have written stories, and with more compulsion. Escape Velocity is the first time I have seriously tried to integrate fiction and drawing. I love episodic storytelling, especially the great HBO series–The Wire, Six Feet Under, Deadwood, etc.–and have enjoyed thinking about how to break a story into semi-coherent pieces.
