Julie Hensley & R Dean Johnson

Please help us welcome Julie Hensley and R Dean Johnson to Davidson. Julie Hensley’s brand new collection, Landfall: Ring of Stories, chronicles three generations of several families in Conrad’s Fork, a fictional Appalachian town. Landfall was the winner of the 2015 Ohio State University Press Non-fiction Prize.

R Dean Johnson is the author of two books, Californium: a novel of punk rock, growing up, and other dangerous things (in pre-sale) and Delicate Men: Stories.  R Dean Johnson grew up in Southern California, where everyone still calls him Rob, Bobby, or Bob. Which he likes.  An Associate Professor at Eastern Kentucky University, he directs and teaches in EKU’s low residency MFA in creative writing program, Bluegrass Writers Studio.

Julie Hensley is an Associate Professor at Eastern Kentucky University and core faculty member in the Bluegrass Writers Studio Low-Res MFA Program who lives in Kentucky with her husband, R Dean Johnson.
