On behalf of my client, Kameisha Jerae Hodge, I would like to express interest in her hosting a book signing / poetry reading at Bridge Street Books. Kameisha Jerae is a 22-year-old spoken word artist and poet from southeast. Her book (Atlas of Consciousness) has led to a few interviews; however, she feels that in order to become a full-time writer, she must put forth more effort to make a name in her city and surrounding areas. As a native Washingtonian and self-published author, she finds it imperative to reach out to independent bookstores before going to commercial ones in order to help build small businesses. To view her work, and to see what you will be investing in, check out these following places:
