The Coffee Joint hosts a semi-psychedelic evening with Gregory Hill, author of the Strattford County Novels
Hill’s work, set in an off-kilter version the Colorado’s High Plains where he grew up and lives today, inhabits a space between gritty realism and implausible lunacy. A drunken cowboy falls in love with a hermit in a cave full of dead Pleistocene megafauna. A Gen-ex slacker returns to his childhood home, and tries to convince his senile father to rob the local bank. A high school basketball referee becomes trapped in time, gets high, eats psychedelic jello shots, and meets a citizen of Pluto.
How does Hill keep a handle on his sprawling literary universe? Why does he keep promising that he’ll stop giving drugs to his characters? Why does he think that every album made in 1967 is the best album ever made? The answers may surprise you. Then again, if you’re digesting a 10mg gummy bear at the Coffee Joint, in Denver, Colorado at 6pm on December 13, 2019, you may not be the type of person who’s easily-surprised.
Don’t worry, Hill will find a way.
