Book Break with Kristina Hamlett | She Lives Here

Book Break with Kristina Hamlett | She Lives Here

If you love soul-quenching poetry or are new to writing, you’ll enjoy this Book Break with Kristina Hamlett. Presented by the partnership between the Virginia Shop and James River Writers, the Book Break series offers the opportunity to connect book lovers to new titles and local authors. Reading the book beforehand is encouraged, but never required.

She Lives Here, Hamlett’s debut collection of poetry and prose, offers a jubilant celebration of womanhood, Blackness, strength, and finding your own kind of joy. Writing the narrative of one’s life is not always easy, especially when faced with racism, sexism, and religious dogmatism. But Hamlett throws out the rules that try to dictate her life story and rewrites her narrative as a young girl from a Haitian community in Queens who moves to Virginia.
 
Kristina Hamlett is a writer, speaker, wellness seeker, woman of faith, and wife from Richmond, where she works in the field of social services helping people re-enter the workforce.
