    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.

On Friday, June 5 we’ll be celebrating our seventh On Water Expo at State Dock on LakeCumberland in Kentucky and our 16th year as the only houseboat-specific boat show. To help kickoff the three-day celebration we’re incorporating a Luau theme, which means the fun will carry on well past the scheduled hours of the show. Friday’s show hours are from 2 pm to 7 pm (Central) with a live band that night for all patrons to enjoy. Then on Saturday, the show runs from 10 am to 6 pm and again a live band will perform to end the day. And on Sunday the hours range from 11 am to 4 pm and this year’s event promises to provide great products and lots of fun.    While the Luau theme will help keep the Expo fun, the real draw to our annual show is and always will be the exhibitors. Where else can you meet and talk with the houseboat manufacturers, tour dozens of new and used houseboats, run-a-bouts, pontoons, ski boats, shop for aftermarket products, as well view different types of secondary watercrafts? Plus the show will be staffed with insurance and finance companies, as well as houseboat brokers to help answer any questions you might have. Besides the boat giveaway, on-dock poker run, food, prizes and entertainment, there will also be educational seminars held as well as a captain’s course where you can learn to operate a houseboat. With live music on Friday and Saturday night following the show, you won’t want to leave State Dock and that’s what makes Houseboat Row so popular for attendees. State Dock converts many of its rental houseboats into “boatels” for the Expo. These houseboats do not leave the marina and are less expensive than most hotel rooms. Plan on joining the Houseboat magazine staff at State Dock the first weekend in June for a once-a-year celebration of what makes houseboating so much fun.
