Attend a reading with WVU alum James Tate Hill from his new book ‘Blind Man's Bluff’

James Tate Hill

The WVU Humanities Center welcomes all faculty, staff, students and community members to join WVU alum and West Virginia native James Tate Hill for a reading from his new memoir “Blind Man’s Bluff” Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. in the Mountainlair Gold Ballroom. 

Participants may also join virtually via Zoom; register in advance here.   

Hill’s unfailing candid, humorous memoir discloses his experiences living with blindness and the tricks he employed to pass for sighted throughout high school, college and graduate school. In fact, Hill first received assistive services while attending graduate school at WVU in the late 1990s.   

The Center hopes this event both celebrates Hill’s accomplishments and showcases the ways in which WVU supports students with disabilities. 

Sign Language Interpreting and Captioning Services are available by request for participants who are deaf or hard of hearing. To request an interpreter or captioner, contact by Sept. 22.
