One Blue Wall

Event date: 

Thursday, January 30, 2020 - 7:00pm
2720 Frankfort Ave
Louisville, KY 40206

One Blue Wall is a creative publication that values diversity, freedom of expression, and a sense of community within the youth of Louisville. Through our biannual literary magazine, our website, and our events, we strive to provide a spotlight for various forms of creative media and an outlet for like-minded, passionate people to connect with each other. 

 

In the latest issue, Diary of First Mate John, each piece of writing concerns a man named John, whether it speaks from his perspective, builds a world around him, or recounts an interaction or relationship that he has created with another person. Each writer was given the character knowing only his name and his loose relationship with the sea. The result was a wide variety of pieces illustrating who John was. Ultimately, it is an amalgamation of styles, in which the pieces read like a collaged anthology that recounts the life of the consistent character, first mate John.

Chris Dennis

2720 Frankfort Ave
Louisville, KY 40206


A yacht races to outrun a tsunami. A young man jailed on a drug charge forms a relationship with his cellmate that is by turns tender and brutal. A family buys a rural slaughterhouse, and tensions with their religious neighbors quickly escalate. A teen raised by his eccentric gay father, a Turkish immigrant, finds his life fractured by violence. A fictionalized Coretta Scott King, surveilled and harassed by the FBI, considers the costs of her life with her husband.

Here Is What You Do is a bravura, far-ranging collection, its stories linked by sorrow and latent hope, each one drilling toward its characters’ darkest emotional centers. In muscularly robust prose, with an unfailing eye for human drives and frailties, Chris Dennis captures the raw need, desire, cruelty, and promise that animate our lives.

Chris Dennis holds an MFA in Fiction from Washington University in St. Louis, where he also received a postgraduate fellowship. His work has appeared in Granta, West Branch, and New Stories from the Midwest.

When Samantha Miller started working at Carmichael's four years ago, she asked if we could sell an older book, Jim The Boy, published in 2001. It was one of her favorite books, and she swore that if we carried it, we could sell it. Now, we've sold over 100 copies of this beloved book, and we are going to celebrate. Tony Earley himself will be here, along with actors from the Kentucky Shakespeare Company, and we'll also have cake and live music.
