June 20, 2015: Dylan Hicks reviewsTrampoline for The Minneapolis Star-Tribune, comparing our hero Dawn Jewell to Hamlet. Which we think is probably good, but makes us wish we'd paid more attention in high school, just to be sure.
June 10, 2015: Allyce Amidon, associate editor of Foreword Reviews, included Trampoline in a blog post called "More Novel Than Graphic: Authors and Illustrators Discuss the New Hybrid." Also discussed in the piece are Gail Sidonie Sobat, author of Jamie’s Got a Gun and Frieda Wishinsky and Willow Dawson, author and illustrator, respectively, of Avis Dolphin.
West Virginia Public Radio producer Roxy Todd produced a very nice piece on Trampoline for the radio news magazine Inside Appalachia. One can listen to it, or read the transcript, here. They also posted a bunch of the illustrations at that link. Thank you, Roxy and the rest of the good folks at Inside Appalachia for doing this. Inside Appalachia is a dandy news magazine. For example, this week's show also includes pieces on the passing of Jean Ritchie and the latest from UMWA president Cecil Roberts.
Thanks, Lexington Herald-Leader for publishing, and Candace Chaney for writing a nice feature about the whole first novel, Trampoline situation. There are pictures of Al's Bar and the Holler Poets scene there, too.
