Robert Gipe


Robert GipeMeet Robert Gipe who is celebrating the publication of Weedeater: An Illustrated Novel, a sequel to his celebrated first novel Trampoline. Set in contemporary eastern Kentucky, it returns to the character Dawn Jewell, the center of her family, who is searching for lost family members, her lost youth, her lost community, and her lost heart in the most turbulent and deadly phase of the community’s battle with opioid abuse. Gipe, who is a native of Kingsport, Tennessee, is the director of the Appalachian Program at Southeast Community & Technical College in Cumberland, Kentucky where he is involved with an oral history-based theater project called “Higher Ground.”
