About the Event

Join us for a virtual discussion with James Tate Hill, author of the memoir  Blind Man's Bluff.

At age sixteen, James Tate Hill was diagnosed with Leber’s hereditary optic neuropathy, a condition that left him legally blind. For fifteen years, Hill hid his blindness from friends, colleagues, and lovers, even convincing himself that if he stared long enough, his blurry peripheral vision would bring the world into focus.

James Tate Hill is the author of a memoir, Blind Man’s Bluff, released August 3, 2021 from W. W. Norton. His fiction debut, Academy Gothic, won the Nilsen Literary Prize for a First Novel. His essays were Notable in the 2019 and 2020 editions of Best American Essays. He serves as fiction editor for Monkeybicycle and contributing editor for Literary Hub, where he writes a monthly audiobooks column.

This program is being proudly hosted in co-sponsorship with: Centerville Library, Eastham Library, Edgartown Library, Provincetown Library, Vineyard Haven Library, and Whelden Memorial Library.
