Resting in the Familiar front cover 442

Resting in the Familiar is a collection of my new and previously published poems.  It was published in 2017 by Independent Writers Studio Press.  This collection covers my early years as a military brat, family stories, my life in Bellingham and in the Methow Valley in Central Washington. Comments by a fellow writer:

This rich collection vividly evokes people and places with unembellished feeling and clarity of voice.  Christine Kendall transforms the ordinary into the lyrical, one memory, one observation, one resonant detail at a time.  Resting in the Familiar is an impressive collection by a poet sure of her craft.  Kendall stands in the great tradition of Evergreen State poets from Ella Higginson to Mary Barnard to Madeline DeFrees.
